The subject of migration is usually studied from the perspective of the migrant as an individual, with only indirect reference to his family. However, concern for the family´s welfare is often the initial motive for migration.

For this reason, healthy migration will only be achieved when the welfare of the family of the migrant worker is taken into account, when migration is no longer forced upon them through marginalization, hunger or lack of opportunities in their place of origin. The problems of well-paid employment for the breadwinners in each family throughout the world, food self-sufficiency, health services for all, educational opportunities, comprehensive scientific applications for the development of the family, must be addressed. Otherwise, migration, with its uncertain future, becomes the only viable option for survival.
