The European Commission supports the European countries with grants from program EU Health Programme for a total of 5.5 million euro.
Part of the funds is intended the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and will be used to rebuild the medical history of migrants and assess their health needs.

Meanwhile, however, growing dissent. In Slovakia, Prime Minister Robert Fico, against the creation of Muslim communities, he said
"Slovakia must be made safe from external threats and the only way to minimize the risks linked to terrorism is to prevent the creation of a Muslim community in Slovakia, as it would if they were actually put in place the provisions relating to units of migrants "
These are the words of a few days ago the Prime Minister Robert Fico, in response to sexual harassment and the robberies took place New Year's Eve in Cologne, Germany, by Muslim men against hundreds of women, and that have echoed across the local and international press by "shaking" the EU about a possible closure of borders to refugees Muslims. Brussels fears a domino effect on the security front Given his recent internal border controls in the Schengen area, introduced by Sweden and Denmark
All this is taking place at an even more complex given the upcoming parliamentary elections, scheduled for March 5 in Slovakia, and that Prime Minister Fico is determined to win. The Prime Minister, after having reiterated the government's intention to work for greater defense of the borders of Europe, he added that, from now on, EU financial aid for the management of migratory crisis will not be used for the support from Bratislava of refugees but to improve the security structures that protect the external border of the Schengen area.
