PROMOVAX – promote vaccinations among migrant populations in europe font

PROMOWAX is a 3-year project funded by the DG SANCO Public Health Program 2008 – 2013 aiming to promote vaccination among migrant populations in Europe. The project will add to the knowledge on barriers concerning migrants’ immunizations and develop educational material for both health professionals and migrants, as well as propose recommendations for policy-makers. It aims to complement EU policies on reaching hard to reach populations.

General Objective:
PROMOVAX aims to complement EU policies on reaching hard to reach populations by:
− adding to the knowledge of barriers among migrants concerning immunizations
− developing recommendations for policy-makers regarding the immunization of migrants
− developing educational material for both health professionals and migrants

Moreover, PROMOVAX aims through spillover effects to enhance migrant health in general, by:
− establishing health care provider-migrant communication channels
− promoting migrants’ trust in the health system

Specific Objectives:
− Identify and record the immunization needs of migrant populations and develop a methodology for a thorough assessment of each individual migrant immunization needs.
− Evaluate migrants´ access to immunization in the EU countries.
− Analyze available legislative context and identify gaps.
− Identify and exchange best practices in the field of migrant immunization promotion.
− Enhance health care professionals´ and other migrant care givers´ knowledge about immunization needs for European migrants.
− Improve the knowledge of EU migrant populations on immunization

PROMOVAX project targets 3 groups:
− Documented migrant population in the countries of the European Union. Documented migrants are considered people whose entry, residence and where relevant employment in a host or transit country has been recognized and authorized by the official State authorities. PROMOVAX also aims to use migrants’ social networks, such as religious, other type of gatherings, cafeterias, settlements, and migrant press, through which both documented and undocumented migrants can be reached. Therefore, it is expected that through spillover effects (involvement of NGOs, social care workers, migrant press etc) this project will reach undocumented migrants as well.
− Health care workers and other care givers providing for migrants in the European countries.
− Policy makers in an effort to promote immunizations among migrant populations in Europe.
