Right to receive medical care for Sans-Papiers


Titelbild Gesundheitsversorgung für Sans Papiers


Sans-Papiers live under difficult conditions. Work is often strenuous and hard on the health. Added to this is the stress of living without an authorised residence status as well as being far from your home country. All of these factors may seriously impact your physical health and mental wellbeing. Some warning signals that you should pay atten- tion to and take seriously are back aches, bad moods and depression to name a few.
