Guaranteeing undocumented migrant women’s access to affordable maternal health care in the EU
When pregnant women are unable to access affordable maternal health care, public health evidence shows that they face increased risks of poor maternal health outcomes and complications during childbirth. The harmful impact of existing legal and policy barriers facing undocumented migrant women in access to maternal health care in the EU have been exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please join us for a roundtable discussion on these barriers, the impacts of COVID-19 and good practices and recommendations that EU member states can follow in guaranteeing undocumented migrant women’s access to affordable maternal health care.
