Abstract [en]

While the amplitude and direction of variations in outcomes differ between host countries, migrant origin/status and the outcome examined, there is a marked trend for worse pregnancy-related indicators among refugees and migrants. Being a migrant can be considered a risk factor in itself for poorer maternal and newborn health outcomes and also be a proxy for other risk factors and potential explanations. This technical guidance identifies problems and entry points for interventions for maternal and newborn health in refugees and migrants in the WHO European Region. Policy considerations are outlined for four main areas affecting refugee and migrant maternal and newborn health: individual health status, accessibility of health care, quality of care, and health care policy and financing systems.
