The health and healthcare of vulnerable migrant children

Issue 138 (Spring 2011)

Many different groups of migrant children may be at particular risk of poor health and limited access to healthcare. These include unaccompanied asylum-seeking children (who have applied for asylum in their own right) and children who are dependants of asylum-seeking adults, for some of whom disadvantage may persist after they or their families have been granted refugee status or leave to remain.
