VIM stands for Vitality Interventions for Migrants and builds on the experience gained in “Health Box”, a very successful LLP-funded project (www.healthbox.eu). Health Box developed micro-learning units on crucial healthy-lifestyle topics that were integrated in other training contexts (e.g. labour market training). This approach shall now be transferred to the target group of refugees and migrants.
Staying in good health, adopting healthy life styles and being informed about the health system of the host country as well as having confidence to make use of it are pre-requisites of successful integration of refugees and newly arrived migrants.
