There are an estimated 1 billion migrants in the world, of whom 214 million are international migrants and 740 million internal migrants. The health needs and implications of this sizeable population are considerable. Migration flows involve a range of populations, including workers, refugees, students and undocumented migrants, each with different health determinants, needs and vulnerability.
