This book helps to recognize the rights of refugees and provides a framework to identify and approach health needs, from basic elements like service mapping and initial interventions to more complex elements of ongoing healthcare and support and broader topics such as migration public health, migration policy and health systems. Beyond biomedical frameworks, it draws on socio-ecological models to inform assessments and integrated models of care to improve health and health equity. Set out in three comprehensive sections: public health theory (Part 1), applied public health (Part 2), and clinical approaches (Part 3), this book draws on multiple disciplines and insights from humanitarians, academics, policy experts, and clinicians from diverse contexts, with expertise in forced migration, to create an accessible reference tool to inform healthcare professionals' interactions with forcibly displaced individuals and populations in all contexts for both high and low resource countries. Apart from providing information across the spectrum of health issues, clinical specialties and global contexts, it discusses associated areas, including human rights and law, public health, medical anthropology and cultural awareness.
Bridges the gap between existing academic literature on refugee health and guidelines for health management in humanitarian emergencies

Recognizes the complex and interconnected needs in displacement scenarios and identifies holistic and systems-based approaches.

'The best aspects of the book are the comprehensive nature of the content and the succinct manner in which the multitude of impacts is covered. There are many graphs and well-designed charts to exemplify the content. [...] It would be a great library resource and wonderful reference for students, clinicians, and public health planners.'
