Ministry of Health launches new website for immigrants

HealthService_site (Agencies) The Ministry of Health has launched a website (http://www.riec.es/) aimed at telling immigrants how to make the best of the Spanish health system. In Spanish, English, French, Arabic and Romanian, its full title is Immigration Health Information, Education and Communication Resource Centre and offers information on how the system works.>

The site combines news, education and communications to create a support service that aids adaptation to a society that is ever more multicultural, the ministry said in a statement. The material is compiled so that  it makes it directly available over the Web to any health-care professionals working inside or outside the National Health System as well as to the general public.

It was developed by the School of Public Health of Andalucía, taking into account the fact that immigrants make up 10% of the population of Spain’s 46 million inhabitants.
