EUR-HUMAN: PHC for Refugees

EUR-HUMAN course for primary health care providers who are involved in health care for refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants

Introducing a virtual course for primary health care workers providing primary health care for refugees, asylum seekers and other newly arrived migrants.

When the international refugee crisis reached a critical point in 2015-2016 many European countries started to develop policies and plans to define their role in supporting refugees entering Europe. In response, the European Refugees-HUman Movement and Advisory Network (EUR-HUMAN) started, in 2016, to enhance the capacity of European member states that accept migrants and refugees to address their health needs; safeguard them from risks, and minimize cross-border health risks. An e-learning course for primary healthcare providers is one of the tools that has been developed within this project. The main objective is to build the capacity of primary healthcare providers in Austria, Italy, Slovenia, Hungary, Greece and Croatia; and to close knowledge gaps about the various issues involved in providing primary healthcare for refugees/asylum seekers and other recently arrived migrants in the EU member states.
