MedCOI2: Extending the sharing of information and best practices, research on policies and jurisdiction in the EU and training of national authorities’ officials aimed at developing a common approach on the collection and usage of medical Country of Origin Information (MedCOI) in individual cases
project

The project provided a platform for European countries to share and research on information on the availability of medical treatment in countries of origin. Ever more often European countries need to research on medical COI to determine whether the medical situation of an asylum seeker is of relevance when deciding upon the protection status or the possibility to return a denied protection seeker – a task which is difficult and costly if carried out by countries alone. The ERF funded MedCOI 1 project tackled this challenge by providing a platform for European countries to share and research on information on the availability of medical treatment in countries of origin (here after: CO). MedCOI 2 builds upon the excellent experience of cooperation in MedCOI 1 and intends to consolidate the MedCOI research and to further extend its scope.
