A good place for the new Corps to start work would be Idomeni. There has been a Hepatitis outbreak at the camp in northern Greece.  Migrants there have been left in truly miserable conditions by Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

The best approach to public health emergencies is disease prevention. Giving migrants adequate shelter and food should stop any natural disease outbreaks in their tracks.
