With the early transfer of refugees to general practice, there is an urgent need to address key issues related to migration and health among family doctors. This practical book is the first to help general practitioners and other primary health care providers improve their provision of care not only to immigrants, but to other vulnerable groups and the whole society. The book meets the imperative need for primary health care professionals to develop skills and competencies when meeting patients with diverse backgrounds in order to ensure equity in health care in our current day societies.
