Actions undertaken to identify and define more concretely the real needs in terms of health, provided both by the VRM themselves and the Health professionals.
In WP5 a pilot survey to collect information on physical and mental health status will be carried out giving qualitative insight on the current health status of migrants and refugees, together with quantitative indications from literature. It aims to assess the needs and raise awareness of difficulties that migrants face in terms of access and utilization of healthcare services and which are directly linked between the social determinants of health and the barriers to the traditional health system.
Preliminary report on needs analysis: The current assessment aimed at providing key aspects of the needs of migrants and refugees in term of health, together with the evaluation of the needs of healthcare professionals. Focus groups, individual interviews and online questionnaires were completed. The preliminary report is a working document compiled with inputs from at least the three “clinical sites”: Barcelona, Berlin and Brno; and it will be updated with the results of different activities of the WP, especially the online survey and additional focus groups and individual interviews by September 2018.
‘We are pleased to announce that we have launched a short video with the preliminary findings of needs assessment survey results conducted in Barcelona.’
