Financing Healthcare for Migrants: A Case Study from Thailand 2009. IOM and WHO (2009)

Financing Healthcare for Migrants: A Case Study from Thailand 2009. IOM and WHO (2009) Thailand has a relatively well established public health system featuring the launch of universal health care coverage in 2002. The development of the public health system and healthcare financing has contributed significantly to an equitable service provision and financial contribution of the health care system. However, in the absence of official Thai status, stateless / displaced persons are excluded from the Universal Health Coverage Scheme (UC), despite the fact that they were previously covered by the Low Income or Health Card Scheme prior to the introduction of the UC policy.

HIV Transmission Potential among Local and Migrant Factory Workers in Kolkata, India. Deb AK, Saha MK, Deb M, et al (2009)

HIV Transmission Potential among Local and Migrant Factory Workers in Kolkata, India. Deb AK, Saha MK, Deb M, et al (2009) Migrant workers in India play a key role in the spread of HIV. Kolkata is a common destination for workers, who may acquire infection and transmit it to their wives and/or other sexual partners. We investigated sexual relations and condom use by factory workers. Migrant and local factory workers were randomly selected from five wards of Kolkata. Information was collected about demographic and socio-economic characteristics, sexual relationships, condom usage, and perceptions and intent to use condoms. Condom use was very low in both groups of workers, particularly among migrants. Many married workers visited female sex workers but never used con- doms. Few intended to use condoms, and if they did, it did not always translate into actual usage. There is great potential for transmission of HIV/sexually transmitted infections by these workers. Carefully designed interven- tion and education programs in the context of low literacy and cultural norms are urgently needed.

The Threat Posed by the Economic Crisis to Universal Access to HIV Services for Migrants. Joint United Nations Initiative on Mobility and HIV/AIDS in South East Asia (2009)

The Threat Posed by the Economic Crisis to Universal Access to HIV Services for Migrants. Joint United Nations Initiative on Mobility and HIV/AIDS in South East Asia (2009) The objective of this paper is to give an overview of the potential impact of the current crisis on migrant and mobile populations in Southeast Asia, and assess how the likely increase in unsafe mobility with its accompanying risks and vulnerabilities for HIV transmission will affect the health of people on the move. The economic crisis will have severe consequences for employment and poverty in the region as it often pushes out of the labor market the most vulnerable, such as migrants. Migrant workers vulnerabilities to HIV will likely be exacerbated with increasing deterioration of their economic opportunities. Further, we know that even during the best economic times the combination of social, cultural, linguistic, legal and behavioral barriers affect migrants’ access to information and to prevention, health and social services. These conditions are likely to worsen during the economic downturn.

HIV/AIDS & Mobility in South-East Asia: Rapid Assessment. United Nations Regional Task Force Secretariat & UNDP Regional Centre in Bangkok (2008)

HIV/AIDS & Mobility in South-East Asia. UNRTF (2008) There are signs of progress in reducing the pre-valence of HIV in some countries in the region. For example in Myanmar, Thailand and Cambodia, where despite the earlier presence of generalized HIV epidemics, the number of new infections per year has declined. In Cambodia and Myanmar, the general prevalence is now below 1% (0.9% and 0.7% respec-tively), according to the latest 2007 estimates. In contrast, Indonesia is experiencing one of the fastest growing HIV epidemics in Asia, through injecting drug users (IDUs) and men having unprotected sex with multiple partners. Viet Nam also saw a rapid increase of people living with HIV from 2000 to 2005, driven by injecting drug use and unprotected sex.
