International migration is one of the most important issues of the global policy agenda. The ASEF Public Health Network’s research initiative on health and migration aims to contribute to policy development process and to implementation of evidence-based policies and programmes across Asia and Europe. As part of this endeavour, the ASEF Public Health Network launched the 1st Joint Research on Regional Integration and Infectious Diseases in 2011. The research study by the Yuchengco Center (The Philippines) and Fondazione ISMU (Italy) on “Public Health Challenges in the Era of Migration: The Health Dimension of Southeast Asian Migration to Europe” presented concrete data on health status of Chinese and Filipino migrants in Europe. It also put forward some recommendations to integrate their needs into the policies of host communities. This Abridged Report allows the readers to capture the essence of their rich study, whose full report was published in 2013.
