The European Asylum Support Office (EASO) helps EU Member States give protection to people in need and provides evidence-based input for EU policymaking and legislation in all areas having a direct or indirect impact on asylum. For us working in the migrant health field, ensuring continuity of care and treatment is critical.
The MedCOI project was established to improve access to Medical Country of Origin Information (MedCOI) for national migration and asylum authorities in Europe. The objective of the project is to provide and share reliable information to national migration and asylum authorities in Europe in order to support accurate and fair decisions in international protection and other migration procedures.
Within the context of the MedCOI project, EASO needs to contract a worldwide network of experts providing accurate information on accessibility and availability of medical treatments and medications in countries of origin. As explained in the “Notice of call for expressions of interest”, experts have to first submit their filled out application form, together with required supporting documents. The application form (annex I) is available on the EASO website. Additional information can be found here.
