[Correspondence] Is it time for a Refugees’ Health Unit in Greece?

By late 2015, 483 910 people had passed in Greece through the eastern Mediterranean channel.1 At the European Commission summit on Oct 25, 2015, Greece was asked “to increase reception capacity to 30 000 places by the end of the year”.2 After the European Council Summit on March 17–18, 2016, particular emphasis was placed on guarding the external borders of the European Union and offering Greece more help in order to create more refugee camps.3 Almost 57 000 refugees and migrants are already in Greece and the process of their return to Turkey or resettlement in other countries is bound to take time.
