Better health control of migrant populations

Better health control of migrant populations

Europe has been plagued by massive arrivals of migrants in its territory for several years. The socio-economic upheaval caused by such migratory flows adds to the danger of the health of European citizens. In fact, cases of scabies, tuberculosis and HIV are regularly detected by the health services on the populations of migrants, or, because of their proximity, on the staff working to take care of them as soon as they arrive. The European states are struggling to meet the health needs of the many migrants whose burden is a real crisis, harbingering the great challenges of the 21st century. Their geographical distribution in our States causes the congestion of our already saturated health services and threatens the spread of contagious diseases among the indigenous population.
In these circumstances, does the Commission consider revising its migratory policy which endangers health workers and populations?
