The coordinates of human health are complex even in a single population but they are even more complex in migrants whose life situation is always influenced by the host country and the country of origin. Thus it is important to survey well-being, health status, disease panorama and use of health services of immigrants compared to the native population; such analyses would be incomplete without casting a view on the same indicators and parameters in the country of origin. We will review health effects of migration from the country of origin to the host country with scientifically valid state-of-the-art evaluations and develop appropriate recommendations for scientific and health policy measures in improving the conditions for the EU immigrants.
