Healthcare rights of migrants

Asylum seekers: Asylum seekers have access to state medical care. This includes emergency healthcare and essential treatment of illness and serious mental disorders.

Refugees: Refugees have access to state medical services free of charge. They have equal rights compared with Maltese citizens and are entitled to all the benefits and assistance to which Maltese citizens are entitled to under the Maltese Social Security Act. 

Undocumented migrants: Undocumented migrants have the right to state medical care and services free of charge within the framework of detention centres.

HIV testing and treatment

Testing: Free for all, although private hospitals may sometimes charge a fee. It is anonymous, but if results are positive, the person has to be registered in order to get treatment. Use the European test finder to see where you can get tested for HIV. 

Treatment: Free for all, except for undocumented migrants.
