Synopsis

Migration and Health begins with an examination of the problems associated with the use of migrants in epidemiological studies and then discusses the role of migration in the evolution of gene pools. It then explores the various consequences of population movement including the diffusion of diseases such as malaria, HIV, AIDS and tuberculosis, mismatches between the distribution of health services and the ever-changing nature of population distribution, and the impact of migration upon migrants themselves. Finally, the use of migrants in helping to understand the role of environmental and genetic factors in the occurrence of disease is then considered. Drawing upon a wealth of geographical literature and international case studies, Migration and Health provides a concise, accessible account of the relationship between migration and health.
