Migration is of growing concern in the European countries. Each year, around 11 million EU citizens of working age migrate within Europe, in addition to the ones coming from non-European countries.

Gender inequality in health and survival continues to be one of the most important research areas of our times. Biology, lifestyle behaviors, and social characteristics have all been shown to play important roles in explaining gender gaps in survival and health.
