“Cities of Rights: Ensuring Health Care for Undocumented Migrants”

The Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants (PICUM) published a new report entitled “Cities of Rights: Ensuring Health Care for Undocumented Migrants”, which reveals how cities in Europe are providing access to health care to those who are not eligible to benefit from public health systems. Many cities in Europe are filling this gap because they realise the importance of good health for social cohesion and public health in general. As stated by the PICUM Director, Michele LeVoy, “In a political climate that increasingly looks for ways to shut migrants out, cities have chosen to find ways to make services more inclusive. Those providing essential services such as health care, shelter and education should never be obliged by law to report irregular migrants. There needs to be a clear separation of service provision and immigration law enforcement. » Read the full report here.
