Recently, Europe faces several societal and political challenges due to the large global migration which are highly discussed in the public, as well as in the academic and political arena. The current migration wave to Western Europe is a sign and symptom of the recent globalization process and the increasing political unrest. This migration is massive, unprecedented, extremely diverse and mostly unregulated. In the future migration into Europe will become a routine for which Germany and other European countries ought to be prepared. Therefore, several actions and reactions in terms of policies and laws for the acculturation and integration of migrant populations are urgently needed, particularly to adapt health policy strategies for improving the health status of immigrants. The conference “Refugee Migration and Health” aims to highlight the main challenges for Germany and Europe caused by the recent developments in global migration. Furthermore, the necessities in the management of migrant populations in terms of medical care and health system adaptations will be discussed.
