Health Consultation Program

The aim of this program is to provide assistance to vulnerable communities who find it difficult to access the free health services provided by the Greek government and the Greek public health system.

Our medical team consists of our medical coordinator and our cultural mediator who work tirelessly to meet the health needs and help overcome challenges our beneficiaries face on a daily basis. The services that are provided are as follows:

  • Information provision regarding the emergency department for the daily hospital on duty in the surrounding area

  • Instructions for those seeking help and guidance regarding Greek hospitals

  • Provision of essential information regarding the Greek public health system

  • Translation services during working hours (Greek, Arabic & English)

  • Contact with doctors and/or medical staff to follow up on medical cases

  • Assistance with booking medical appointments

  • Health information sessions for different target groups

The main aims of the project are:

  • To provide basic information on the Greek health system to refugees, asylum seekers and migrants

  • The inclusion of the refugee population in the Greek health system and health services
