MyHealth – Models to Engage Vulnerable Migrants and Refugees in their Health, through Community Empowerment and Learning Alliance

Implementation period:

The MyHealth project began in April 2017 and was completed in June 2020.

The project…

The main aim of MyHealth is to improve the healthcare access of vulnerable immigrants and refugees (VMR) newly arrived to Europe, by developing and implementing models based on the knowhow of a European multidisciplinary network. MyHealth Project will focus on women and unaccompanied minors newly arrived in Europe (less than five years).

The Central Objectives of the project are: 

  • Develop a comprehensive, interactive map outlining the main health issues, main actors and stakeholders; reference sites dealing with migrants’ remittances (MREM); legal and organisational aspects of health systems in the partner countries; and the available ICT tools.
  • Clearly define the current health problems of migrants treated in health centres.
  • Define and develop health intervention strategies in mental health as well as communicable and non-communicable diseases utilising a community health approach.
  • Develop an ICT based platform to support tools, enhance health applications development and health information.
  • Implement defined strategies and models in pilot over the hospital participating in the consortium.
  • Train and involve key actors (from users to management) in the health system value chain.
