Topic Description

Priorities of the year, objectives pursued and expected results:

The EU is currently facing a very high influx of refugees and other migrants. In response to this, project grants will be provided aiming to:

- Provide support to Member States/other countries participating in the 3rd Health Programme under particular migratory pressure and to non-governmental organisation working in those Member States to help address the health related issues of arriving migrants while preventing and addressing possible communicable diseases and cross-border health threats, in particular at the designated hotspots and in the areas of reception of refugees and other migrants.

Expected results are a re-enforced response capacity of the Member States under particular migratory pressure to provide the arriving refugees and migrants with initial health assessments and preventive measures, including for children and other vulnerable groups, and thus contributing to combating cross border health threats.

Description of the activities to be funded under a call for proposals:

The activities to be carried out can include all or part of the following:

Address the increasing health threats resulting from population movements by:

- Supporting the establishment of interdisciplinary teams, and the provision of initial health assessment at arrival including a personal health status report to be given to the concerned person, to be shared with health care workers if needed, while considering the particular vulnerability of refugees and other migrants, fully respecting data protection requirements and guaranteeing adequate protection of privacy. This health status report will use a common format, and, if possible, be complemented by an electronic format;

- Supporting the provision of immediate preventive measures, including vaccination where needed with a specific focus on vulnerable groups bearing in mind objectives 1 and 2 of the Health Programme;

- Supporting the application of general hygiene measure;

- Preparing and piloting tailor-made health education and health promotion material;

- Co-operate, coordinate and communicate effectively with the health authorities at local, regional and, where needed, at national level, with the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), as well as with other actors engaged in the assistance to refugees in the same geographical setting, taking into consideration the needs expressed by the local authorities and by other organisations operational in the field;

- Take stock of the available tools and measures to support the process of integration of refugees in the Member States' health systems.

All activities should be carried out based on the best evidence available, including existing materials co-funded under FP7, H2020 or the Health Programme.
