Prevention of Trafficking and the Care and Support of Trafficked Persons. The Asia Foundation and Horizons Project Population Council (2001)

Prevention of Trafficking and the Care and Support of Trafficked Persons. The Asia Foundation and Horizons Project Population Council (2001) In recent years, millions of women and girls have been trafficked across borders and within countries. The global trafficking industry generates an estimated five to seven billion U.S. dollars each year, more than the profits generated by the arms and narcotics trades (Widgren 1994). Over the last decade, the growing trafficking problem in South Asia has been recognized. Nepal and Bangladesh have been designated as “sending” countries or countries of origin in the regional web of trafficking. India and Pakistan are usually referred to as countries of “transit” or “destination.” Girls and women are trafficked within country boundaries, to other countries within the region, and acros s regions and continents beyond South Asia.

HIV/AIDS Mobility and HIV/AIDS in the Greater Mekong Subregion. Chantavanich, S (2000)

HIV/AIDS Mobility and HIV/AIDS in the Greater Mekong Subregion. Chantavanich, S (2000) The Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), comprising Cambodia, Lao PDR People’s Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Vietnam, Thailand and Yunnan Province of PRC, shares the water resources of over 3,000 miles of the Mekong River. This river has become a new symbol of unity in a region emerging out of decades of civil wars escalating into regional and international conflicts and the cold-war era. In the geopolitics of the GMS, Thailand is an economic front runner and China is the major power broker. Most of the GMS is in transition from a rigid communism to socialism operating on market economy mechanisms. This is opening up new opportunities and choices for once politically or geographically marginalised communities. The political stability over two or three decades has been threatened by conflict in Cambodia in recent years, but of greater concern today is the ongoing political instability in Myanmar.

Migrant Populations and HIV/AIDS - The Development and Implementation of Programmes: Theory, Methodology and Practice. UNESCO and UNAIDS (2000)

Migrant Populations and HIV/AIDS - The Development and Implementation of Programmes:Theory, Methodology and Practice. UNESCO and UNAIDS (2000) This publication is based on the experience of the authors and of other researchers and programme developers with various migrant populations in Israel in HIV/AIDS prevention and the related fields of sexual health and sex education. Examples are drawn from the work with two recent waves of immigration from Ethiopia and the former USSR to Israel. Observations were made on similarities between the migrant populations as well as on their unique characteristics in inter- action with a host culture. This resulted in developing culturally sensitive HIV/AIDS prevention programmes while responding to the general needs of the migrant populations.

Reproductive Health in Refugee Situations. UNHCR (1999)

Reproductive Health in Refugee Situations. UNHCR (1999) Reproductive health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity, in all matters relating to the reproductive system and to its functions and processes. Reproduc- tive health therefore implies that people are able to have a satisfying and safe sex life and that they have the capability to reproduce and the freedom to decide if, when and how often to do so. Implicit in this last condition are the rights of men and women to be informed and to have access to safe, effective, affordable and acceptable methods of family planning of their choice, as well as other methods of their choice for regulation of fertility which are not against the law, and the right of access to ap- propriate health-care services that will enable women to go safely through pregnancy and childbirth and provide couples with the best chance of having a healthy infant.
