The health conditions of immigrants in Greece. The research example of N.G.O Praksis
Immigrants are a vulnerable population group with particular characteristics, which means that they face an increased risk of social exclusion. Migrant access to health services is one of the most important factor that contributes to their social inclusion in the host society. The purpose of our study is to record the health conditions of migrants in terms of health services provided. Also, the presence of migrants as a work force in Greece is also examined. Immigrants' access to health services is dictated by laws, in a state of justice, and helps to reduce inequalities and then to safeguard public health. The study was conducted in a population that lived in the Prefecture of Attica and more specifically in Athens. The structure of the work is as follows: The introduction gives the basic definitions that will make us better understand the main terms of immigrant and refugee. The first chapter presents the economic and socio-cultural effects of immigration. In the second chapter immigrants are considered as a workforce, depending on their living conditions as workers, and there is evidence of their inventory. The third chapter examines the example of NGO Praksis, gives information about the organization as well as more specifically about the structure from which the sample was taken for research. The fourth chapter analyzes the purpose of the study, the respondent population and the methodology of research, followed by the analysis with the results of the survey. In the fifth chapter there is a reference to the right to use the health system by immigrants, access to health services, and the latest developments for uninsured and vulnerable healthcare groups. Then the sixth and final chapter follow the conclusions. Finally, it is followed by the Annex listing the survey questionnaire as well as the charts that emerged during the statistical analysis of the data.
