The European Union is committed to ensuring that all citizens have access to healthcare regardless of their country of origin, for the benefit of individuals and society as a whole. ECDC was requested to produce a report on migration and infectious diseases in the EU to inform policy and public health responses.
The first disease-specific reports in the resulting Migrant health series focus on HIV/AIDS epidemiology, describing the burden of HIV infection in migrant populations, and access to prevention and care among migrant populations.
The Background note to this Migrant health project provides an overview of migration and communicable diseases in the EU and a brief summary of issues related to migration and health, and points out possible areas for future public health research and intervention.
