Description: Nearly one fifth of the people who permanently live in Moldova had at least one household member who went abroad for working in 2010 (Ganta 2012). Therefore, people of all age groups are affected by migration - mainly children, spouses and parents of migrants. This literature review examined the impact of migration on the health of people left behind, including physical and mental health as well as certain social aspects of health. HIV and human trafficking were dealt with separately. Furthermore, the impact of migration and brain drain on the Moldovan health system was analyzed.
