Description: 

This report was produced within the framework of the IOM’s EQUI-HEALTH project (Fostering health provision for migrants, the Roma, and other vulnerable groups), in collaboration with Cost Action IS1103 ADAPT and the Migrant Policy Group (MPG), with the financial contribution of the European Commission’s Directorate General for Health, Food Safety (SANTE), through the Consumers, Health, Agriculture, and Food Executive Agency (CHAFEA) and IOM. Full details of the research and its methodology are contained in Section I and II of the Summary Report.

'Equity' between migrants and nationals means that migrants are not disadvantaged with respect to nationals. This usually requires equal treatment, but where migrants have different needs it meands that special measures should be taken for them.
