The general objective of the project is to support EU Member States (MS) under particular migratory pressure in their response to health related challenges. Specific objectives of the project are to support MS’s coordination, assessments, planning of a public health response, fostering access to health care and capacity building efforts through training of health workers. Target countries are Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia (first arrival and transit countries); Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Malta, Sweden, The Netherlands (traditional destination countries); and Portugal, Poland, Spain (new destination countries). The ultimate beneficiaries are registered and unregistered refugees asylum seekers and other migrants, while direct beneficiaries are the health systems of each EU MS and their health workers. The project will contribute to meeting the objectives and priorities of the Annual Work Programme 2015. SH-CAPAC is being submitted by 7 European health institutions, 6 of them have developed the EU-funded MEM-TP project under the same lead institution (EASP, Spain). The partners will function as a collective entity for developing the necessary instruments and tools through a division of labour; carrying out regional advocacy and capacity building activities; conducting site visits to target countries for specific technical assistance; coordination activities with national health authorities and other relevant national stakeholders as well as with relevant international organisations and the EU. The project comprises 6 WP -including different tools and instruments to be developed- which are organized as a set of processes that will be structured as complementary, intertwined and synergistic streams of work, mutually reinforcing each other. They are intended primarily to support MS to strengthen their health systems for addressing the health needs of the refugee, asylum seekers and other migrant populations.
