Description: 

Based on the recommendations of the EU Advisory Group on Migration and Health, a matrix of European migration health projects was developed as part of the Assisting Migrants and Communities (AMAC) project. The objective was to explore synergies amongst European Commission funded projects and especially those funded under the EC Public Health Programme 2006-2008. Nineteen projects were included in the analysis, covering topics such as different types of lead partner organisation, participating countries, deliverables, objectives, beneficiaries, areas of study/action and stakeholders. The findings suggest the usefulness of such an exercise. They show that effective instruments are needed to keep track, analyse and maximise the results of past and current projects and initiatives at the international, EU and national level in the field of migration and health in Europe.
