The Health of Refugees

Public Health Perspectives from Crisis to Settlement

Second Edition

Edited by Pascale Allotey and Daniel Reidpath

  • Helps clinicians and community health practitioners address specific health concerns for children, sexual and reproductive health, and the elderly.
  • Addresses the particular health concerns regarding non-communicable diseases and mental health, as well as global infectious disease.
  • Relevant not only for those interested in the global mass movements but also for those working in urban refugees settings
  • Provides the opportunity for the press and social media to engage with the implications of the transmission of news and current events
  • Provides context for understanding the impact of major political events on forced migration and health
  • An analysis of the current political landscape and the impact it has on refugees and migrants.

New to this Edition:

  • The first edition had a mainly regional focus, using Australia as a case study. This edition extends the issues to a global context.
  • The chapter on media in the previous edition predates the internet as a medium for news and current events and the rise of social media, twitter etc. This edition addresses the complexities of a significantly better informed (if now always accurately so) public
  • This edition has a greater involvement of the international humanitarian community including WHO, UNHCR, IOM and UNICEF.
