We live in an age of constantly shifting populations, as immigrants and refugees seek a safe haven from war, famine and poverty. The healthcare of these dispossessed people is now a stark challenge not only in zones of conflict but in those wealthier countries that have offered sanctuary. The book is based on the authors' combined forty-plus years of work as clinicians and teachers in refugee and immigrant health. It is written with clinicians and students in mind and is thus practical, yet theory-based, so it can be used in the field and as a teaching text. It bridges physical health (highlighting infectious disease risks), mental health, and spiritual issues; and encompasses population-specific information on history of immigration, culture and social relations, communications, religions, pregnancy and childbirth, end-of-life issues, and health screening. It also details health beliefs and practices of 30 cultures from more than 40 countries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is an excellent resource. It contains population groups not usually found in other books on similar topics. A total of 31 groups are included from Afghanistan to Vietnam. Two unique topics that are covered in each chapter are history of immigration and end-of- life issues. The other usual areas are covered such as pregnancy and childbirth, communications, religion, health beliefs, social relations, and health problems/screening. The pictures alone are worth the purchase." Doody's Review ServiceG
"...provides useful facts about health care needs of refugees and challenges faced by providers, and raises awareness of cultural differences." - Journal of Emergency Nursing, Christine May
