Yesterday, May 3, the European Commission organized a meeting in Luxembourg to launch two three-year projects on immigrant health:
Project coordinators and leaders have presented the main objectives of their respective projects, a framework of planned activities and expected results. The Executive Agency for Consumers, Health, Agriculture and Food (CHAFEA) will inform the administration, finance and reporting of project contributions and there will be opportunities for networking, collaboration and sharing of knowledge.
In addition to the two projects mentioned above, the Commission's Health Program finances other projects and actions related to the health of refugees for 2017. Among them is the ORAMMA project, which aims to improve access to and provision of maternal health care for Refugees and migrant women, was signed earlier this year. In addition, a direct grant was awarded to the World Health Organization (WHO) for the joint EC / WHO MIHKMA project - Management of migration and health knowledge and financial aid for the training of first-line health professionals Who work with immigrants and refugees.
