Migrant Health

At this important point in time, when the number of displaced persons in the world is higher than any time since the end of World War II, the ISTM would like to re-affirm to our members that we have a direct interest in migrant health, and support all international efforts to aid immigrants and refugees.

Traveling across borders is the essence of travel medicine, and we want to remain mindful of the obstacles that people fleeing war zones and violence still face in the world. Almost all of our member countries are affected by this concern.

More than ever, we need to remember our responsibility to help those who are not in a position to help themselves.
