Abstract

Work migration from poor to rich countries in one of the consequences of globalization processes. While health represents a central dimension of migration, access to health care services is one of the obstacles, migrant workers have to cope with in their countries of arrival. This is specially so for undocumented migrant workers arriving to countries in which access to health care depends on legal residency.
The present paper compares undocumented migrants' access (or lack of access) to health care services in Spain and Israel, emphasizing the mechanisms by which they are included to or excluded from access to the different levels of health care.
