The epidemiology and policy implications of communicable disease (CD) transmission associated with international migration have received little systematic study.
This is a review of clinical and epidemiological reports in search of strategies to assess and manage the impact of international migration on the transmission of CDs.
The economics and demography of migration from less developed to industrialized nations is considered.
Migration-related transmission should differentiate between transmission as opposed to geographic relocation of disease.
Limitations of current screening and disease prevention strategies are discussed.
