Title Migration and Health: A Review of the International Literature
Author Laura McKay, Sally Macintyre, Anne Ellaway

This report is a comprehensive review of primary literature on internal and international migration and health. It is the result of searches using five on-line databases, a list of health and migration related keywords, and strict inclusion and exclusion criteria (see section 2). These searches produced 362 papers, of which 136 papers met the criteria and were included in the report (see section 5). These papers were summarised and separated into internal migration, and four subgroups within international migration: ‘all cause and cardiovascular mortality’, ‘cancer mortality’, ‘mental health’, and ‘morbidity, risk factors and anthropometry’.
