Migration has seen increased attention in recent years with over 214 million migrants worldwide. European societies are increasingly more ethnically and culturally diverse. Regardless of the reasons people leave their countries of birth, migration may impact the health status of migrants. European health systems, designed to cater to the needs of the majority population, are often ill-equipped to respond to those of newcomers and ethnic minorities. Better health outcomes for all segments of the population warrant the need for adapting health care and bridging the policy practice gap.
