On the 5th of July, in Barcelona, Myhealth coordination team met Vanessa Grotti (Principal Investigator, Anthropologist) and Nina Sahraoui (Post-doctoral Research Associate), representatives of EU BorderCare project, which aims to facilitate the accessibility of healthcare services for undocumented pregnant immigrant women giving birth at EU’s peripheries (mainly at refugee camps close to EU external borders). EUBorderCare also focuses on the empirical analysis of personal and institutional relations of care and control in the context of pregnancy and childbirth in some of Europe’s most densely crossed borderlands in France, Greece, Italy and Spain.
The participants exchanged views on the current, cross-cutting activities of both EC financed projects, engaged in a reciprocal stakeholder collaboration by finding common ground of cooperation at disseminating of both project outcomes and activities, including MyHealth mapping questionnaires, needs surveys among professional contacts.
EUBorderCare’s project outcome is raising awareness on the growing phenomenon of EU migrant maternity care through an initiative by launching ‘ERCCOMICS’, available on the following website: https://www.erccomics.com/comics/expecting

The joint kick-off meeting is taking place today in Luxembourg.
Launch of two 3-year projects responding to the call under the EU Health Programme, Migrants’ health: best practices in care provision for vulnerable migrants and refugees
MyHealth aims to improve healthcare access for vulnerable migrants and refugees, in particular women and unaccompanied minors, who have recently arrived in Europe. To this end the project partners, which include Universities, research institutes and charities from seven EU countries, will develop and implement models to engage vulnerable migrants and refugees in their health through community empowerment and learning.
Mig-HealthCare brings together 14 partners from Universities, national authorities and NGOs in 10 EU countries, to produce a roadmap to effective community-based care models to improve physical and mental health care services, support the inclusion and participation of migrants and refugees in European communities and reduce health inequalities. The project will include testing the feasibility of community-based care models in different settings and countries.
The project coordinators and work package leaders will present the main objectives of their respective projects, an outline of the planned activities and the expected results. The Consumers, Health, Agriculture and Food Executive Agency (Chafea) will inform about the administrative, financial, and reporting of the project grants, and there will be opportunities for networking, collaboration and sharing knowledge.
