Are undocumented migrants and asylum seekers entitled to access health care in the EU ?

This report gathers together the executive summary of the HUMA publication "Access to health care for undocumented migrants and asylum seekers in 10 EU countries" (2009) and the results of a new piece of research undertaken in six more countries with the support of the HUMA partners. All together, this study concerns sixteen EU countries: Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom.

This publication will be available in 13 languages and is primarily addressed to individual professionals and organisations advocating for migrants' rights and for the right to health as well as to national and EU policy makers.

Given the legal nature of this report, the data could be subject to continuous changes depending on legislative amendments in the different countries. In this regard, one should be bear in mind that the information concerning Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom is from September 2009. The data on Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Greece, Poland, Romania and Slovenia corresponds to September 2010.
