Medical examinations of refugees should be harmonized
From June 2016, medical examination is no longer a mandatory part of the integration process for refugees arriving in Denmark. Throughout Denmark there is a great variation in the way medical examinations of refugees are carried out. There are neither national guidelines nor strategies for how to manage this challenge systematically and equally throughout the country. We encourage the local municipalities together with the regions and general practitioners to find a solution for a uniform approach.
