Displacement of people due to external or internal factors is rising across the world, particularly due to conflicts and natural disasters, but also socio-economic factors. According to WHO, there are an estimated 1 billion migrants in the world today of whom 214 million are international migrants and 740 million internal migrants. This has a significant impact on the spread of infectious diseases and on a country’s health system. 

The latest RSTMH’s online collection focuses on migrant health, with a selection of reviews and original research articles from Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine & Hygiene and International Health.
