International migration is a global phenomenon that is growing in scope, complexity and impact. Human migration is now at an all-time high, accounting for 240 million persons and is shaping world events and fuelling political and public debates. People have been migrating since the beginning of human history to escape natural catastrophes, wars and dictatorships or to seek out a better life for themselves and their families. These flows have led to the progressive and balanced mixing of people that has generally been productive, leading to cultural and economic exchanges that have benefited both the native and migrating populations and have built nations. The rate of migration however, has increased dramatically since the 1970s, tripling over this time. Forced migration, driven primarily by conflicts, social injustice and global inequities, has also increased during this same time, resulting in a quarter of all international migrants who are refugees, asylum seekers or internally displaced persons many with health disparities. Migrant populations are heterogeneous and have a broad range of health needs -- their presence raises several medical, ethical, economic, social and cultural issues for both migrants and receiving health systems.
