Infectious diseases of specific relevance to newly-arrived migrants in the EU/EEA
This document provides a checklist of infectious diseases to be considered among migrant populations and serves as a reminder for frontline healthcare workers of the risks of infectious diseases for newly-arrived migrants.
Migrant populations entering the EU/EEA, and particularly children, are at risk of developing infectious diseases. Migrant populations may be subject to specific risks of infectious diseases depending on their country of origin, countries visited during their journey as migrants and the conditions they experienced during migration.
