More than one million people fleeing violence and insecurity in their home countries have crossed the Mediterranean Sea into Europe. This dangerous passage is just one step in their journey away from their homes in search of safety and security. The health needs for this population are complex and varied, and they are often made worse by their living conditions and exposures along the route. This lecture explores the health and humanitarian needs of this population, and presents the work of Doctors Without Borders in responding to these needs.
