Basic services

As a cross-cutting policy agenda, the Action Plan makes reference to services such as housing and health. The Commission is committed to support best practices in the care provision for vulnerable foreigners under the Health Programme. Pilot training modules will be developed to upgrade health professionals’ skills while Member States are to create (mental) health expert networks and coordinate healthcare policies with housing and social services, to mention but a few.

The Action Plan also presents tools to strengthen policy cooperation between national, regional and local integration actors. Mandating the European Integration Network (former National Contact Points on Integration) with a greater mutual learning role and the creation of an Urban Agenda Partnership focusing on the integration of third country nationals are 2 good examples of increased coordination between respectively EU Member States and other relevant stakeholders, including European cities.
