Abstract Background. In recent years, the flow of migrants and refugees to EU nations is recorded in high amounts. By travelling through ships or nonhygienic boats most of them tend to have a high amount of risk in getting health issues. However, getting proper healthcare is a fundamental human right since refugees or migrants can actively contribute to the development of host countries and their native nationalities. Therefore, in this paper, we try to explore the common diseases that happened to migrants who travel to Italy in recent years. Methods. We analyzed the Italian refugees’ data provided by the Italian health ministry in the years 2013-16, and explore the key pathologies and their medical conditions. All the data correctly classified and analyzed depending on their age, gender, and pathologies that they posses Results. From 2013 to 2016, in total, 455,912 refugees were travelled into Italy. 74% male, 12% female, and 14% of minor refugees were recorded during this period. In pathologies, rashes or skin diseases (scabies) were happening in often and after scabies pregnancy issues were observed on a considerable scale.

Abstract

Abstract Background. In recent years, the flow of migrants and refugees to EU nations is recorded in high amounts. By travelling through ships or nonhygienic boats most of them tend to have a high amount of risk in getting health issues. However, getting proper healthcare is a fundamental human right since refugees or migrants can actively contribute to the development of host countries and their native nationalities. Therefore, in this paper, we try to explore the common diseases that happened to migrants who travel to Italy in recent years. Methods. We analyzed the Italian refugees’ data provided by the Italian health ministry in the years 2013-16, and explore the key pathologies and their medical conditions. All the data correctly classified and analyzed depending on their age, gender, and pathologies that they posses Results. From 2013 to 2016, in total, 455,912 refugees were travelled into Italy. 74% male, 12% female, and 14% of minor refugees were recorded during this period.
