Health and Well-Being of Immigrant Children and Youth

Description

In our increasingly global world, the health of immigrant children and youth populations has become an important health issue both internationally and at the national level. The purpose of this special issue is to provide a platform through which researchers, as well as program and policy makers, can learn about the various factors that contribute to the health and well-being of immigrant children. This issue will focus solely on empirical findings at the international, national, and local levels. Research articles and rigorous meta analyses are welcome. The topics to be covered in this special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Social determinants of immigrant children's health and well-being
  • Biological determinants of immigrant children's health and well-being
  • Health and well-being disparities based on gender, sexuality, sex, race, ethnicity, generation status, ability, age, social class, education, and so forth
  • Health and behaviour issues associated with children and youth that are region and/or country specific (e.g., apartheid, racism and discrimination, genocide, abuses, refugee flight, human trafficking, etc...)
  • Issues of resiliency
  • Both quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods research articles are invited
  • Book reviews on (national or cross-national) immigrant children's health and well-being are invited
