Abstract

There is still a shortage of efficient systems to fill cultural, linguistic, and information gaps; services designed to make up for the insufficient support due to isolation and social exclusion are still poor; health, physical, and mental problems remain scarcely investigated; there is a lack of prevention and timeliness of diagnosis; the breaks in the continuity of care are often attributable to constant relocation; and the difficulty of accessing care services remain to be evaluated. The approach itself is actually complex, since it deals with a non-homogeneous population, generally excluded from official statistics or whose data, when considered, are not disaggregated. At present, there are no global or national indicators related to migrant health, and no regional system has been implemented for standardized data collection, so studies often do not consider large segments of the population and incorrectly report the health status in surveillance surveys
