EAP Signs Budapest Declaration on Children on the Move, Guidelines on Migrant’s Health to be Published Soon

EAP has created its own detailed guidelines on the health risks and needs of refugee and migrant children entitled Providing primary care for migrant children in Europe. Seeking to provide optimal care for migrant and refugee children in need of paediatric treatment, the publication of the Guidelines (which contain 12 guidelines in all) was preceded by a comprehensive survey carried out by EAPRASnet (check our EAP Members News section for further information). The Guidelines shall be published in The Lancet in the beginning of 2018.

The publication of the Guidelines follows the release of ISSOP’s Budapest Declaration for Children on the Move, of which EAP is a signatory. Approved during ISSOP’s Annual Meeting (held on 28th-30th September in the Hungarian capital), the Budapest Declaration 2017 primarily focuses on children on the move and their health and well-being. The document states that ISSOP and its members will implement practical guidance issued by the UNHCR and the Global Migration Group (GMG) in 2017.
