Natives and Newcomers, Partners in Health
The 2015 Ebola epidemic, as well as the global migration crisis, bring to light the connection many people make between loathsome disease and strangers. Myths about newcomers and disease have long informed both immigration policy and health policy. This book focuses on the latter and reviews basic demographics about migrants and their health, dispelling the myths that have thus far informed health policy. The book argues that health should be understood as a global public good and that understanding it as such has important moral and practical implications that ought to be taken into account as health policy is developed. This introduction provides a chapter-by-chapter outline of the book.
