The electronic Personal Health Record (ePHR) is a health information system that registers health data on newly arriving migrants and was implemented in eight European countries (Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia). This is a cross-sectional study aimed to describe the health problems and health status of all migrants attended at health clinics as part of the health assessment program established in the reception centres (2016–2019).
The present study provides a snapshot of Slovenian tourists’ perceptions in a historically unique point of time – the early days of the covid-19-related lockdown. Based on an online survey performed in March and April 2020 the study provides first insights into Slovenian tourists’ perceived threats of covid-19 on two dimensions: severity and susceptibility; how this depends on their demography and past travel experience and what, in this specific point in time, they think about future travel avoidance.
Objectives: This study aimed to examine the link between human mobility and the number of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)–infected people in countries. Study design: Our data set covers 144 countries for which complete data are available. To analyze the link between human mobility and COVID-19–infected people, our study focused on the volume of air travel, the number of airports, and the Schengen system. Methods: To analyze the variation in COVID-19–infected people in countries, we used negative binomial regression analysis.
Background: The electronic Personal Health (ePHR) Record is a health information system for newly arriving migrants that has been implemented in seven European countries (Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Serbia and Slovenia). This is a cross-sectional study of all migrants who attended as part of the health assessment programme established in the reception centres between 2016 and 2019 that provides a comprehensive overview of illness and health in the migrant cohort.

Background Within health systems, equity between migrants and native-born citizens is still a long way from being achieved. Benchmarking the equitability of policies on migrant health is essential for monitoring progress and identifying positive and negative aspects of national policies. For this purpose, the 2015 round of the Migrant Integration Policy Index (MIPEX) was expanded to include a strand on health, in a collaborative project carried out between 2013 and 2017 in 38 countries.
The project is a follow-up to IOM Ljubljana’s AVRR Programme 2014 – 2015. The proposed programme features the following component: a) Organization of voluntary return and reintegration, including all operational and logistical considerations of return: individual and groups counselling on AVRR, assistance in obtaining travel documents, provision of airline tickets, Fitness to Travel checks, escort assistance, special services for vulnerable groups of migrants etc.
The project is a direct follow-up to IOM Ljubljana’s AVRR Programme 2013 - 2014, coming to a close on 30 June 2014, which in turn built upon IOM’s AVRR Programmes 2010 – 2012 and 2012 – 2013. The proposed programme features the following two components: a) Information activities: the production and distribution of informational brochures and posters in 9 foreign languages most frequently used by migrants in Slovenia.
