Sabrina Moh Abdelkader is divorced and remarried to a Christian. What might rather be a scandal in Germany in many Muslim circles is not a problem for her family: “I also brought a child from my first marriage into the second,” she says.

This is the main conclusion of the first “Report on the health of refugees and migrants in the WHO European Region” which was released by the WHO Regional Office for Europe.
