This brief paper is the introduction to this JEMS special issue on Migration and Health in Southern Africa, drawn from papers presented at a conference organised by the Transnational Communities Programme (University of Oxford), the Southern African Migration Programme (Queen's University, Kingston, Canada) and the Faculty of Humanities, University of Cape Town, on 27-29 January 2003. Cross-border and within-country migration have generated complex and challenging difficulties for healthcare provision; not only do migrant populations often require specialist treatment for unfamiliar conditions, but the numbers involved and the distances travelled often change long-held epidemiological assumptions about the local population. In the contemporary southern African context, the spread of HIV/AIDS has often been associated with increased population mobility. This introductory paper summarises each paper in the special issue in turn, and concludes with some practical suggestions for policy measures.
