Abstract
This issue is devoted to migration and occupational health, an important topic that has been largely ignored by occupational health professionals and by those concerned with the health of migrants around the world. The manuscripts cover several high-risk occupations, geographic regions of the world, and special populations and conditions. The topics are addressed from multiple academic disciplines, both quantitative and qualitative, and include descriptive reports, etiologic studies, and interventions to reduce the increased occupational health burden of immigrant workers. Many of these papers were first presented at two conferences in 2008: (1) The Center for Occupational and Environmental Health Symposium, ''Immigrant Workers: A Population at High Risk for Occupational Injury and Illness,'' held in April, 2008, in Oakland, California; and (2) the 20th International Conference on Epidemiology and Occupational Health, held in June, 2008, in Costa Rica.
