(p.133) 8 Forced Migration and Population Health
War and the Health of Nations
Stanford University Press

This chapter, which investigates the effect of conflict on public health through forced migration and the generation of refugee flows, discusses the deteriorating impact of forced migration on key indicators of population health and the positive effect of democracy, national income, and economic openness on health achievement. It evaluates the linkages among war, forced migration, and health outputs for the period from 1965 to 1995, and suggests that states which host large numbers of refugees will experience a decline in their health achievement.

Keywords:   public health, forced migration, refugee flows, population health, democracy, national income, economic openness, health achievement, war
