Migration internationale : phénomène global, impact local, l'exemple de deux parasites

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2009, vol. 5, no. 202, p. 1022-1025
Abstract International migration profoundly affects the world's economy and social situation. This global phenomenon modifies the epidemiology of numerous diseases and exposes countries to new challenges in public health. Migrants may export pathologies specific of their country of origin but also develop health problems typical of the country of residence. This article presents some key figures on international migration and explores some of its consequences concerning Chagas disease and malaria epidemiology in Switzerland.
