It bridges physical health (highlighting infectious disease risks), mental health, and spiritual issues. It also details health beliefs and practices of 30 cultures from more than 40 countries.

Review:

"This is an excellent resource. It contains population groups not usually found in other books on similar topics. A total of 31 groups are included from Afghanistan to Vietnam. Two unique topics that are covered in each chapter are history of immigration and end-of- life issues. The other usual areas are covered such as pregnancy and childbirth, communications, religion, health beliefs, social relations, and health problems/screening. The pictures alone are worth the purchase." Doody's Review ServiceG

"...provides useful facts about health care needs of refugees and challenges faced by providers, and raises awareness of cultural differences." - Journal of Emergency Nursing, Christine May
