Migration and health

Abstract

Migrants are a significant and diverse population. Many migrants have no different health needs from native people, but multiple health harms can result from the process of migration itself as well as the underlying reasons for migration. There are a number of hurdles in improving the health of migrants and they are sometimes referred to as the 'mobile underserved populations'. This editorial discusses this diverse group of migrants in relation to the individuals' health but also as they impact on the healthcare services in host nations.
