Migration Health Services Medical Manual: 2001 Edition

This edition of the Medical Manual is a reference tool providing guidelines for the promotion and application of best practices in the areas of health management, disease prevention and medical and practical treatment for health care activities with immigrants.

The manual covers immigration health assessment for resettlement, issues of infectious diseases related to the immigration medical evaluation, health aspects of movement operations and national medical evaluation of immigrant procedures. Owing to the expansion of IOM activities and the growing interest in the relationship between public health issues and population mobility, it also addresses the issue of DNA testing and age verification of migrants and migration health aspects of land and sea movements.
