​This is an Expert Opinion developed within a limited time scope to address urgent health needs related to the influx of migrants into the EU. The advice was requested by the European Commission who asked ECDC to focus on migrants entering the EU, particularly those who may be irregular or are applying for asylum or refugee status and who originate from Africa or the Middle East. The options to address health needs of migrants concentrated on actions which can be taken at the point of entry or after arrival.
