Throughout human history migration and disease have been intimate, sometimes deadly partners. Migration Medicine offers an overview of the historical triggers and ethical issues that spurred development of the global public health monitoring and control agencies we know today. The text aims to propose new approaches to the health of internationally mobile populations at multiple levels, such as integration and harmonization with what may have been considered traditionally non-health sectors - trade, the economy, and international security. The need to provide a strong evidence base for political decision making has become one of the most important drivers in international affairs related to globalisation. This book suggests a course toward this important goal.
