The fact that migrants lack savings may not be the sole and essential reason for their extreme vulnerability in times of illness. Some migrants, who are in financial difficulties though, may have some assistance, including financial and emotional support from their social networks.

Rural-urban migrants cannot normally change their residency status from rural hukou to urban hokou. These rural-urban migrants suffer various human rights violations. For example, they endure overcrowded and unsanitary housing conditions  .

This article concentrates on analysing social networks and health among rural-urban migrants in China. The function that social networks substantially play on the issue of health among migrants in China has rarely been discussed in studies. On the basis of a case study of a migrant community in Beijing, this paper examines the range of social networks among migrants, from which they can acquire support, including financial and spiritual, when they are dealing with health problems.

Health policies focusing on equitable health outcomes should pay more attention to rural-to-urban migrants in China’s health care system reform. Rural-to-urban migrants (1. 9%) had higher needs for health services than urban residents (1. 7%) in general, while urban residents and migrants had no differences in needs in 2012. Besides, there was no difference in the utilization of health services between residents and migrants in 2012, 2014 or 2016. In addition, increased age, male sex, poor medical insurance coverage and dissatisfaction with income were found to have negative effects on health care needs.

Compared to rural migrants, urban migrants generally enjoy more civil rights and better living conditions (Cheng, Nielsen, & Smyth, 2014;Lee, 2012;Li et a. 2015). However, due to fiscal decentralisation, China's local govern- ments have become more responsible for providing urban welfare and social services to local citizens. Identity and trust in government: A comparison of locals and migrants in urban China. The first is to examine the determinants of wage arrears among rural-urban migrants in China. The second is to examine the effect of wage arrears on economic wellbeing as proxied by wages. The third is to examine how experiencing wage arrears affects several subjective indicators of wellbeing, such as feelings of belongingness and discrimination in the city.

Other aspects concerning health and the transmittance of contagious diseases are also common with large scale migration. However, other negatives consequences of migration persist as in 2010, some estimates declared that one-third of urban crimes were related to new-generation migrants (Hu, 2012). This may also highlight enduring stigmas and discrimination against incoming migrant workers.

Third, the impact of health on rural-urban migrants’ urban-settlement intention shows no generational differences. In recent years, rural migrants in China have expressed increasingly stronger urban settlement intentions ( Xie et a. 2017). This change in attitudes subverts the conventional recognition that rural migrants are only temporary residents in urban areas and will finally return to their places of origin.

China is experiencing a dramatically increasing process of rural-urban migration, which is almost parallel with the phenomenal economic growth and development in China in the last decades. Given the massive scale of rural-urban migration in China, the health services access and health constraints not only matter to rural-urban migrants but also have important implications for broad public health concerns. However, this issue has not been paid enough attention in academic research. While the literature focuses on describing the demographic trends and economic effects of rural-urban migration, very little in-depth research has been done on migrant health and the constrained access to health services among migrants in urban China. This study focuses on the multifaceted reality of health constraints and health services access among migrants by originally exploring the social strata, social networks, and the understanding of health and health services among migrants. Furthermore, this study investigates the health constraints and health services access of rural-urban migrants in the absence of equal social protection by the government.
