Overview

Migration, Health and Inequality highlights recent developments in the areas of migration, human rights and health from a range of countries. Looking at diverse health issues, from HIV to reproductive and maternal health, and a variety of forms of migration, including asylum-seeking, labour migration and trafficking, it exposes the factors that contribute to the vulnerability of different mobile groups as they seek to uphold their wellbeing. This timely and unique collection argues that we need to look beyond host country responses and biomedical frameworks and include both the role of transnational health networks and indigenous, popular or lay ideas about health when trying to understand why many migrants suffer from poor health relative to their host population. It offers a broad range of linkages between migrant agency, transnationalism and diaspora mechanisms and looks at the impact of migrant health on the health and rights of those communities that are left behind.
