Description: 

Three key elements were analysed in Hungary, Poland and Slovakia as a basis for strengthening the capacity of staff and structures related to health, migration and border management: public health concerns linked to migration, health needs and rights of migrants and the occupational health of staff.

This article was developed within the framework of the “Increasing Public Health Safety alongside the New Eastern European Border Line” project (PHBLM) implemented by the International Organization for Migration under Grant Agreement No 2006206 by the European Union’s Health Programme 2006, with the financial support from the Hungarian Ministry of Health and the Regional Ministry of Health of Andalusia. Opinions expressed herein are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the European Commission, the Hungarian Ministry of Health, the Regional Ministry of Health of Andalusia, or IOM.
