The objective of this paper is to give an overview of the European legal framework governing migration and health. At the outset, it must be noted that there is a large percentage of European migration that is, in fact, intra-European migration. For EU nationals residing outside of their countries of origin there are numerous challenges that must be overcome in order to realize the right to health. While there is a substantial legal framework in place in the EU to address these challenges, it will not be the focus of this paper.
