Migration jeopardizes the mental and physical health of both migrants and the relatives who stay behind. By paying attention to health and migration histories, family dynamics, care practices, transnational intersections of social structures and agency, this interdisciplinary study of Latin American migrations to the United States, Europe and back, identifies health processes and conceptualizes psycho-socio-cultural mechanisms that migrants and relatives employ to cope with migration-related health challenges. Latin American critical epidemiology, critical medical anthropology, sociological, feminist, and race and migration theories inform this activist research project.
