The literature on migration bioethics is not uniform; rather, it consists of a collection of overlapping but distinct debates. This entry contextualizes and describes a set of these debates, including those focused on the ethics of access to health-care by migrants, the ethics of providing health-care in a multi-cultural setting, and the ethics of public policies surrounding the “brain drain” of highly skilled workers from countries wherein they received their training – and in particular the migration of health-care workers.
