Summary/Abstract: Introduction: Illegal migration is a modern phenomenon that affects most European Union countries. Slovak Republic has become the country of transit or the final destination for nations coming from the Third World countries. There are different ways to cross the state border between Slovakia and Ukraine, and the transit to the destination takes place in inhospitable and health threatening conditions. Core of the work: Illegal migrants, after crossing the state border, have restricted personal rights and are subsequently escorted to the nearest border section. In the case of an asylum application, migrants are placed in the Humenne Rescue Camp, otherwise they are escorted to the Secovice Police Department. All people who come into contact with illegal migrants who have been admitted to the detention camp, are subjected to health measures. Conclusion: Scientific research is currently taking place in the Secovice Police Department, in the form of screening examinations aimed at the epidemiological monitoring of potential infectious diseases, in migrants illegally crossing the Schengen border of Slovakia. We assume that the research will be a benefit for the Department of Social Work.
