Migration, Health and Medicine
Recent changes in the scale and distribution of forced migrants across the globe are presenting new challenges to healthcare systems in host European countries.
In advancing their mission, the European Academies have an advisory role to play regarding European and national policies. The purpose of this Conference is therefore to raise awareness of the European Academies on the particular medical, physical and mental but also geopolitical, and social aspects of health problems of migrants.
