The medicine of migration as a social process: the Italian experience

Ardigo Martino


Migration processes and migrant health protection policies are, today, a global problem to be faced by National States. The humanitarian or social crises generated must be observed from the understanding of a production linked to the political facts and specific processes that do not necessarily have to do with the migrants, but with the countries of destination. Therefore, to analyze the health of migrants and understand the role of health of migration, whether in the Italian, European or Brazilian context, it is necessary to analyze the political and social context in which migration processes take place and the social determinants that these processes generate.
