Although most of the migrants are healthier and younger than the majority in their home countries, they can also be exposed to health risks during and after leaving their home countries (Mezzich, 2002). On their way to the recipient country, the migrants may be tortured, lose some of their relatives, and they may also lack health services knowledge in their recipient country. While in the refugee country, they may experience long periods in the refugee camps leading to insecurity with negative health impacts. A higher stress response may lead to complications of higher blood pressure or else unhealthy behaviors such as drug abuse, ignorant to seeking health care when needed, and failure to follow medical services offered.
In conclusion, migrants suffer from negative health consequences due to physical as well as psychosocial hardships they experience as they migrate. The migration process leads to a long lasting effect on the health of the migrants, due to several strains and losses which may cause mental problems (Helman, 2007). However, by eradicating language differences, barriers and differences in beliefs concerning health, the health of migrants may be improved. The migrant’s psychosocial needs should also be addressed regularly as a way of solving this problem before departure, while on the journey, and after arriving in the recipient country.
Internet is the electronic network of networks that create a connection of people and information by means of computers or other digital appliances to allow communication among people and recovery of information (Chambliss & Schutt, 2009). The Internet has played a great role in creating a new social organization in various ways. All types of communities are currently available on the internet, making it possible to meet with people sharing common interests and have a way to discuss issues relating to them.
A lot of information is provided in the internet concerning all the topics known by human beings, where people gather information to develop their social organizations, the World Wide Web is available in more than 200 countries (Katz & Rice, 2002). It’s cheap and convenient to put the information which one needs to pass on the internet. It has become cost effective for various organizations and individuals to distribute information to millions of users and receive a quick response. Incase of updating the information to members of an organization, this can be achieved easily without having to distribute updates to all members each at a time, which is expensive and time consuming.
When one has an idea which he/she deserves some consideration from the public, the idea can be placed through the internet. Millions of users will be in apposition to see the idea as they give their views and suggestions (Slevin, 2000). Through this it would be possible for the owner of the idea to modify his suggestions to fit the likes of the public and easily form an organization of people with common interests. When one desires to call for an urgent meeting, the internet still would provide the most effective and fast way of passing the information to all people who are concerned. In the past years passing of information, and gathering ideas and suggestions has been made easy by the internet, hence promoting social interactions.
