A Research Agenda for Migration and Health

Edited by K. Bruce Newbold and Kathi Wilson

Evidenced by Europe’s refugee crisis and the movement of undocumented workers into the US, international migration has emerged as one of the most pressing issues faced by national and regional governments. The health impacts of migration can be significant and multifaceted, with access to health care often denied or limited, with immigrants experiencing declining health. The health of more vulnerable groups, including women and the disabled, is further compromised. A Research Agenda for Migration and Health provides insight into key research directions and scholarship, with topics including food security, disability, cultural safety, and health care access.

Chapter 2: Disability, migration and health in the Global South: an agenda for research and action

Vera Chouinard


This chapter considers some of the linkages between disability, migration and health in the Global South. It begins by providing an overview of what we know about the outmigration of skilled health professionals from the Global South and the consequences of this for poorer nations in the global order. Next a case study of the outmigration of health professionals from Guyana and the important consequences this has for disabled people is presented. This is followed by a agenda for research and action on this issue. The chapter concludes with reflections on changes needed to create a more inclusionary and enabling world.
