The relationship between physical and mental health is often ignored in many clinical settings. However, across different cultures there is an expected and real integration between physical and mental health. In most countries around the globe there is no equity between funding for services or research. The key aim of this chapter is to provide an overview of the provision of physical and mental health care to migrants, emphasizing the equity of provision of physical and mental health care, and equity of provision of care for migrants, as well as non-migrants, as its starting point. The impact of migration as a result of geopolitical factors, as well as globalization, on access to cultural, material, and economic materials with the visibility of migration and anti-migration feeling raises the importance and the significance of migration as a global phenomenon, and also, in the form of transnationalism or intersectionality, the idea that individuals who are not migrants may equally occupy disparate, stigmatized, or culturally different identities.
