Every year, many thousands of children are adopted outside their country of origin. In addition, larger numbers of children flee strife and take up residence abroad. These children have often been subject to poor living conditions, with little or no access to health care. Their move presents an opportunity to catch up on immunizations and to screen the children for infectious diseases which may prove hazardous to them and to their contacts. Some general principles can be offered, but the details will depend on the individual circumstances.
