Inclusion is a core value driving the 2030 agenda for addressing the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This global commitment calls the world to act on inequities faced by populations affected by structural marginalization, exclusion, and discrimination. However, only recently have populations facing forced migration been recognized within the SDGs as a cross-cutting issue relevant across most, if not all, 17 SDGs. Even more recent is the World Health Organization’s (WHO) first report addressing the health of populations affected by forced migration. While this report recommends integrating migration as a key social determinant of health, there is a need to take a deeper look at the meaning of forced migration as a distinct experience of being a migrant with unique health implications.
