COHEMI is a three-year European project launched in 2011 and coordinated by the "Mario Negri" Institute for Pharmacological Research of Milan, Italy.

The consortium brings together 10 partners, including 6 from 4 European Member States, and 4 from 3 Latin American countries.

The project is supported by the European Commission under the Health Cooperation Work Programme of the 7th Framework Programme.

Each centre has an extensive experience in migrant health research and relevant diseases.

The network's coordination capacity is ensured, at a comprehensive level, by previous cooperation of the involved centres, which have worked on specific diseases and compared experiences in EU and LA countries.

Furthermore, each of the centres collaborating in this project has:

1. developed a specific line of high quality research, relevant to the project;

2. published articles on health-related problems of LA populations and migrants;

3. promoted specific activities in the respective countries, with the aim of covering all migrant categories.
