WHO TAKE CARE OF MIGRANTS

The national conversation on migration often sticks narrowly to the question of how the immigrant arrived. This focus on immigration status sidetracks progress on public health for all European residents, by moving the focus away from addressing the health needs of individuals within our borders. It also stalls needed adjustments of our rigid health care systems that are largely unequipped to care for patients who may become migratory but still need care.

Access to health care for migrants

Migrants struggle with similar challenges as other underserved populations regarding access to health care, but face the additional barriers of mobility, language, and cultural differences, lack of familiarity with local health care services, and limited eligibility to publicly and privately funded health care programs. Migrants are on the move -- but their health care might not follow. Their migratory lifestyles bring them out of their provider networks, reducing access further. Fear of deportation and contact with governmental agencies makes access to health care even more complicated for undocumented migrants.
