Summary Report on the MIPEX Health Strand and Country Reports

Data de publicació:

The Migrant Integration Policy Index (MIPEX) Health strand is a questionnaire edition (2015) monitors policies affecting migrant integration in 38 different countries. The Health strand questionnaire is based on the Recommendations on Mobility, migration and access to health care adopted by the Council of Europe in 2011, which were based in turn on a consultation process that lasted two years and involved researchers, intergovernmental organizations, non-governmental organizations and a wide range of specialists in health care for migrants. The questionnaire measures the equitability of policies relating to four issues: (A) migrants’ entitlements to health services; (B) accessibility of health services for migrants; (C) responsiveness to migrants’ needs; and (D) measures to achieve change. The work described in this report formed part of the EQUI-HEALTH project carried out by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) from 2013 to 2016, in collaboration with the Migration Policy Group (MPG) and COST
Action IS1103, Adapting European Health Services to Diversity (ADAPT).
