Italy, summer 2007. Refugees on Lampedusa Island are rescued by the coastal guard and given medical care and first aid by Medecins Sans Frontieres. Thousands of migrants crossing the Mediterranean Sea by boat continue risking their lives to reach the shores of Italy to then cross into Europe. During the years 2006 and 2007 several "tragic landings” were reported, with an unspecified number of deaths. Many people arrive with medical conditions related to their difficult journey, such as dehydration, skin infections caused by overexposure to the sun and salt, burns from petrol used as fuel for rubber dinghies, and respiratory infections.

Immediate medical assistance is required and MSF has established a project at landings for one of the main entry doors to Europe, the island of Lampedusa. In 2006, MSF assisted more than 18,000 migrants arriving in Lampedusa, the majority originating from Africa, and some from as far away as Asia.

Although migration has become a structural phenomenon in Italy, reception conditions for these people have not markedly improved and the living conditions for undocumented migrants are usually extremely difficult. Even though high numbers of boat arrivals are foreseen, access to care for illegal migrants still remains a mirage in various parts of the country.

In June 2007, MSF was compelled to notify the press that it was hindered by Lampedusa authorities in accessing a boat with 43 migrants, at least two of whom were in need of immediate healthcare.
