The Netherlands have ratified a number of international treaties guaranteeing the basic right of all persons to health. Despite this relatively favourable legal situation, undocumented migrant women and men in Dutch cities have been shown to suffer ill-health disproportionately.
On the basis of a participatory study conducted with undocumented people themselves, in this policy brief, we highlight steps towards realising health rights of undocumented migrants that can feasibly be implemented in Dutch large cities.
