Description: 
An urgent task in many European countries is to adapt health systems to the needs of today’s multi cultural and multi ethnic societies. Such a transformation cannot take place without a migrant sensitive health workforce that supports the required changes and delivers accessible, culturally appropriate, equitable and competent care.
