Abstract:

Migration and population relocation are part of human history. However, recent national and international issues create a need to pay more attention to immigration and its effects on immigrants and the societies in which immigrants resettle. Women constitute about 80% of the world's total of immigrants and refugees. Women immigrants are less visible than are men immigrants. They often receive less health care and care of inferior quality; and they have received less scholarly attention. As a result their health may be compromised.

The overall goal of this paper, which we are calling an olive paper,1 is to raise nurses' consciousness about the urgent need to address health care issues of immigrants in general and immigrant women in particular. 2 We hope that leaders in nursing practice, education, research, and administration will review this document. We also believe that it will be of interdisciplinary interest. Those providing health care to minority, marginalized, and diverse populations, as well as those with interest in culture and health, may find this monograph helpful. It is also intended for policy makers and for state and national legislators. Therefore, the authors' overall goal is to stimulate interest in dialogue about these issues and, in turn, to prepare readers to influence policy makers to improve health care for iimmigrant women.
