- A comprehensive and context-specific approach is required to tackle migrants’ vulnerabilities including addressing issues related to safety and dignity, rights and entitlements, as well as HIV and broader health-related challenges.
- To maximise impact, projects targeting migrants should plan interventions at source, transit and destination with both migrants and their spouses.
- Migration projects should include components that focus on women migrants’ specific vulnerabilities, such as harassment, violence, stigma and discrimination, as well as their vulnerability to HIV and other health problems.

ASEAN Good Practices and New Initiatives in HIV and AIDS. The ASEAN Secretariat Jakarta. (2014)

immage

According to the First ASEAN Regional Report on HIV and AIDS in 2011, “Addressing AIDS in ASEAN Region”, there are 1.5 million people estimated to be living with HIV distributed amongst the ASEAN Member States (AMS). The national HIV prevalence rates in the region range from 0.1 per cent to 0.7 per cent. Although prevalence rates are decreasing, current estimates indicate that there are some AMS that are showing an increasing trend.
The key risk behaviours that drive the HIV epidemic in the region are unprotected sex with multiple partners and needle sharing in injecting drug use. Seventy-five per cent of all HIV infections in ASEAN are reported among key populations (KPs) of sex workers, men who have sex with men, transgender, and people who inject drugs. Other vulnerable populations include the intimate partners of KPs, youths, and mobile populations.

The aim of this evaluation is to assess the project according to its three outcomes areas and to assess the effectiveness and relevance of different interventions. One week visits to India, Nepal and Bangladesh were conducted at the end of January/ early February 2014 by a team of three people, during which interviews and focus group discussion were conducted, and a Lickert Scale tool administered. These visits were then supplemented by some additional meetings in Bangladesh in April, following the production of the first draft report. An endline study was conducted in parallel to the evaluation, and its conclusions are also drawn upon in this report.

Good Labor Practices for Migrant Workers in the Thai Seafood Processing Industry. Kmonpetch A, Aksorngul K, Tangphatchayakoon P, and et al. (2014)

immage

The Good Labor Practices model (GLP)  addresses policy for labor protections and eradication of exploitation and human trafficking, including support for measures to combat child labor in the fisheries. Relevant agencies from the government, private organizations and business owners should consider the GLP model to inform guidelines for promoting decent work conditions, labor and worksite inspections, preventing and managing cases of labor rights violations, mechanisms of filing grievances, issuing of work permits, registering MW and verification of nationality. Migrant workers (MW) working as deep-sea fishing boat crew are an especially vulnerable population with elevated risk of harm and exploitation due to human trafficking practices.
