Migration is a global challenge with many health and human rights consequences. A complex phenomenon, migration cannot be viewed in isolation from economic factors. Principal among these are the increasing number of Trade Agreements that are deepening the poverty of so many people who turn to migration as their only way out of suffering for themselves and their families. Following a brief review of global realities, basic human rights principles, especially those of interest to health professionals, will be addressed.
