"Do migrants have a mortality advantage?"

05.12.2018
The Lancet

Internal migration and international migration are both common occurrences with profound implications for both origin and destination geographies and populations. The process of migration and health of migrants are connected in complex ways. An individual's health can influence their decision to move, and migration might affect the health of those who move, those who stay, and even those who host migrants. In host populations, popular rhetoric and media coverage often portray migrants to be in poor health and a burden on health systems.
