Description: 
Migration represents a great opportunity for the European Union. It counteracts the demographic ageing and enhances Europe’s economic potential by meeting the needs of an increasingly demanding labour market and by contributing to socio-cultural enrichment. A holistic and sensitive policy framework needs to be developed in order to provide quality health care to migrant mothers and their children.
