About the Project

The objective of our project is to increase the competences (attitudes, knowledge, skills) of Migrants for improving their Digital Health Literacy (DHL). Specifically, the project aware Migrants about the importance of Digital Health Literacy and develops Digital Health Skills within the Migrants population and empower them to play a more active role in their health self-management, strengthening the aspects related to the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 and other similar situations. Migrants peers are involved and trained to be able to support Newcomer Migrants. Finally, Health Professionals are trained to be able to support the Migrants population.

Target Group

The target groups and stakeholders include:
  • Newcomer Migrants: Migrant persons recently arrived in an EU country, specially focusing those with low socio-economic profiles.
  • Migrants Peers: Migrants already established and integrated in the country that could support newcomer migrants in their local communities, often belonging to local associations and persons supporting Migrants.
  • Health Professionals, defined as Primary Care professionals such as general practitioners, nurses, social workers and psychologists working from healthcare and/or social welfare agencies. In this line, Digital Health literacy will be professionally addressed from a community-based approach.
