VIM Newsletter 5 – October 2019
VIM stands for Vitality Interventions for Migrants and is a 24-month project that aims to promote information on a healthy lifestyle among migrants and increase their confidence in using the health system of the receiving country.
By this, the project aims to increase the European integration of migrants.
Staying in good health, adopting healthy life styles and being informed about the health system of the host country as well as having confidence to make use of it are pre-requisites for successful integration of refugees and newly arrived migrants into their European host societies.

This was the motto of the final conference hosted by our Greek partner KMOP on 10th of October, 2019. More than 50 people from different countries and contexts took part in the conference. Their background ranged from health professionals and trainers to health project developers.
