Moving from one homeland to a new one can be a painful experience for the people involved. Mass population movement and human resettlement projects too can represent a challenging task and a costly development technique for the governments involved. Governments often view relocation schemes as an opportunity to raise the living standards of the relocatees and to incorporate them into the productive mainstream of the nation. Government relocation policies, however, are often inclined to have a limited perspective and a short time span. A case in point is the community health aspects of the Nubian resettlement in Egypt and the related problems that occur in similar human relocation situations. This chapter discusses various dimensions of the health problems of the relocated Nubian community and examines the connection of these problems to the process of building new human communities.
