Abstract

Coinciding with mass population movement of migrants into Europe, populations of those incarcerated and detained in prisons and immigration detention settings have diversified significantly. A scoping review mapped and described extant literature on migrant health experience and unique support needs in these settings. Fifteen records fulfilled inclusion criteria and indicated that migrants are generally in good health on intake/committal, but have complex mental health needs and are particularly vulnerable to environmental and communication stressors in closed settings. Whilst the review underscores the need for operationalisation of culturally sensitive health and wellbeing supports for migrants in prisons and immigration detention settings, it is recommended that States reduce their reliance on detention.
