Health promotion for improved refugee and migrant health: policy brief (2018)



As for all people, refugees and migrants have a fundamental right to enjoy the highest attainable standard of health. Addressing the impacts of migration and displacement on each person’s physical and mental well-being and advocating for the diverse and unique needs of refugees and migrants is, therefore, a priority. It is also good public health practice that benefits all of society, as healthy refugees and migrants become valuable and productive members of their communities.
