IMMIGRATION AND HEALTH
The relationship between immigration and health is complex, and its impact varies considerably across migrant groups, and from person to person within such groups. Conditions surrounding the migration process may exacerbate health vulnerabilities and risk behaviors such as the case of a victim of sex trafficking through transnational networks. Conversely, it can be an enabler for achieving better health trajectories, such as the case of a newly arrived refugee as part of a humanitarian settlement programme accessing treatment for a chronic disease. Due to the lack of legal status, stigma, discrimination, language, cultural barriers and low-income levels, irregular migrants may be excluded from accessing primary health care services, vaccination campaigns and health-promotion interventions.
