Europe must guarantee migrants better access to medical care, says Santino Severoni, the head of the WHO’s Migration and Health Programme, on Monday and highlighted massive disparities in access to health services in different countries. “To improve their (migrants’) health, it is important to fill the gap for access to basic care,” says Santino. In the WHO’s Europe region, which covers 53 countries, migrants represent almost 10 percent of the population, or 90.7 million of 920 million inhabitants.
