Abstract

In recent years, a considerable amount of Primary Care (PC) visits are devoted to children coming from low income countries. We present some guidelines elaborated with the objective of improving the healthcare for immigrant children. They include risk factors? detection, treatment of medical conditions and follow up. Besides, being a part of PC paediatrician?s task, we underline the need of helping the integration of the immigrant children. It is compulsory to know the origin, culture, food habits and socio-economic situation of these children in order to implement individualized and correct care, to detect present and future diseases and to start more efficient preventive ant therapeutic activities. We emphasize prevention of female genital mutilation among them.
