Project outcomes


The Eugate project, which reviewed existing legislation and policy, obtained the opinions of experts on factors constituting best practice, and assessed the views and experiences of health professionals in different types of health services. The study was conducted in 16 EU countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. This is the summary of the common findings across the participating countries, with recommendations for better practice in service delivery to immigrants.



WP5 - Eugate Questionnaire on Policies and Legislation

The EUGATE Questionnaire for the identification of legislation and policies was designed to map and assess existing legislation and policies on health care for immigrants in EUGATE partners' countries. Its aim was to collect information on the legal provisions to receive health care for persons belonging to the EUGATE target groups.

WP5 - Eugate Database on Policies and Legislation

The EUGATE Database of Policies and Legislation is a tool for comparing existing legislation and policies regulating delivery of care to immigrants within the 16 partners' countries. It was structured so to allow complex queries (some pre-determined queries can be made on line). The database was created and populated using the EUGATE Questionnaire on Policies and Legislation (see above). Besides displaying the results in a comparable way, it also hosts the full text of all referenced documents in their original language. Relevant sections have been translated into English and can be downloaded separately.
