Full access

International migration has emerged as one of the most pressing issues faced by national and regional governments. The health impacts of migration can be significant and multifaceted, with access to health care often denied or limited, with immigrants experiencing declining health in their destination countries, with the health of vulnerable groups including women and the disabled, further compromised. With topics including food security, disability, cultural safety, and health care access, this introductory chapter provides an overview of this edited collection. It also provides an overview of potential research directions and needed scholarship.
