Access to Healthcare and Living Conditions of Asylum Seekers and Undocumented Migrants in Cyprus, Poland, Malta and Romania
This report presents the results of a multi-disciplinary research into access to healthcare for asylum seekers and undocumented migrants in four European Union countries: Cyprus, Malta, Poland and Romania. It reports on legal rights and entitlements and presents the findings of a quantitative survey conducted in 2010 by HUMA network members in these four countries: KISA in Cyprus, Skop in Malta, the Association for Legal Intervention (SIP) in Poland, and ARCA in Romania. The main purpose of this report is to provide insight into the precarious situation and health
problems of two of the most vulnerable groups living in Europe, asylum seekers and undocumented migrants, in Cyprus, Malta, Poland and Romania. In more concrete terms, it provides an overview of the legal systems regulating access to healthcare for undocumented migrants, asylum seekers and their children in these countries, as well as comprehensive data about their living conditions, perceived health status and difficulties in accessing healthcare.
