The National Institute for Health, Migration and Poverty (NIHMP) is a public structure, under the Ministry of Health control, which provides social and health care services to all citizens, Italians and foreigners.
The staff is composed of professionals in different disciplines and from several countries and integrated work between doctors, nurses, psychologists, anthropologists and cultural mediators, allows a holistic and multicultural approach to the persons.
The mission is to perform scientific research on the subjects concerning health, human mobile population and travel medicine, to facilitate access to health services for disadvantaged groups of population, and to counter old and emerging poverty-related diseases.
The Institute is a crossroads of various areas of expertise, not only a health care provider, but a centre where different cultures, theories and practices meet and favour exchange and transfer of practical and theoretical knowledge on the promotion of the health, in order to give life to new formative and educational patterns, addressed to the public and to the health system workers.
Moreover, living in a society where the flows of displaced people are increasingly frequent, at the NIHMP we are aware of the need of addressing both the foreigners hosted in our country as well as the Countries where the people come from. This is the reason why since long we have been developing international cooperation projects in Ethiopia, Cuba, India, Kenya, Peru, Malta.

We will welcome you, also in your own language.
