No differences between the situation of asylum seekers and beneficiaries of international protection for what concerns access to health care were reported. See the section on Reception Conditions: Health Care.

In May 2022, the organisation CEAR and the Fundación Sanitas signed an agreement to provide comprehensive health assistance to refugees. Concretely, more than 75 refugees will be provided with mental healthcare, dental assistance and support for their emotional well-being.[1] The project continued to be implemented during 2023.[2]
