Care for migrants and refugees has become a global public health top priority.
Approximately 65.3 million people have been forcibly displaced due to conflict or persecution according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
Communicable and non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular diseases and mental health problems cause a high burden for individuals and healthcare systems.
Given the potentially heterogeneous features of the migrant population, policy makers need indicators and results of quantitative studies to evaluate and monitor the health needs of this population.
We are organizing a Special Issue on health in adult and minor refugees, as well as in economic migrants of non-refugee backgrounds, independent from their country of origin in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH).
This open access journal is a peer-reviewed and PubMed listed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to the health of this vulnerable population group. We welcome review papers, case reports, original research as well as commentaries related to this field of research.
