Migrants’ Health and Vulnerability to HIV/AIDS in Thailand - Phamit (2005)

Migrant Health and HIV Vulnerability in Thailand (Phamit)

Migrants’ situation in Thailand is precarious. Due to their tenuous legal status and numerous barriers that limit access to health services and legal mechanisms, migrants endure poor working and living conditions without being able to receive full or proper treatment for related health conditions. With a sense of loss of control over their life, and without being able to access health information and services in their own language, migrants’ vulnerability to HIV and other reproductive health conditions increases, as does their susceptibility to contagious diseases and other health problems.

Using the ILO Code of Practice on HIV/AIDS and the World of Work: Guidelines for the Transport Sector. ILO (2005)

Using the ILO Code of Practice on HIV/AIDS and the World of Work: Guidelines for the Transport Sector. ILO (2005) In 2000, when the ILO established a pro- gramme on HIV/AIDS, the Director-General called HIV/AIDS “a workplace issue and a de- velopment challenge”. The point is taken up in the first principle of the ILO Code of Practice on HIV/AIDS and the world of work: “HIV/ AIDS is a workplace issue ... not only because it affects the workforce, but also because the workplace ... has a role to play in the wider struggle to limit the spread and effects of the epidemic.”

HIV/AIDS Prevalence and Risk Behaviours among Cambodian Labourers along the Thai-Cambodian Border. Suwannapong N, Boonshuyar C, Howteerakul N, et al (2004)

HIV/AIDS Prevalence and Risk Behaviours among Cambodian Labourers along the Thai-Cambodian Border. Suwannapong N, Boonshuyar C, Howteerakul N, et al (2004) The HIV/AIDS pandemic is an important problem for all countries in the world. At the end of 2003, between 4.1 and 9.6 million adults and children in South and Southeast Asia were livings with HIV/AIDS. Approximately 430,000 to 2.0 million adults and children were newly infected with HIV during 2003 (UNAIDS, 2003). There were two primary foci of HIV/AIDS in Asia: 1) India; and 2) Cambodia, Myanmar, and Thailand. According to UNAIDS (2003), the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Cambodia is spreading faster than any other place in Asia. Sakaew Province is contiguous with Cambodia, about 170 kilometers along the border. Daily population movement between the countries is at 4 checkpoints, Klongleuk, Ban Nongpreu, Ban Beungtakuan, and Ban Kaodin checkpoints, which are connected with Banteay Meanchey Province of Cambodia and have become tourist attractions. About 180,000 Cambodians were infected with HIV in 1999. Of these, 25,000 became AIDS-infected patients (WHO, 2001).

Migration and HIV: Vulnerability Assessment among Foreign Migrants in South Korea. UNDP (2004) With rapid and steady economic growth since the mid 1980s, the South Korean work force is increasingly avoiding the so-called 3D (difficult, dirty, and dangerous) jobs, causing an imbalance in the supply and demand of labor. This situation has attracted a great number of migrant workers to the Republic of Korea (here after referred to as Korea) since the late 1980s.

UNAIDS/IOM Statement on HIV/AIDS Related Travel Restrictions. UNAIDS and IOM (2004)

UNAIDS/IOM Statement on HIV/AIDS Related Travel Restrictions. UNAIDS and IOM (2004) Since the very beginning of the AIDS epidemic, countries have established travel restrictions in an effort to prevent the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) from crossing their borders. Such measures include mandatory HIV testing for persons seeking entry to the country and the requirement that would-be entrants declare themselves to be uninfected. Based on these mandatory tests and declarations, a number of countries have excluded from entry people living with HIV or people suspected of being infected. Restrictions have been imposed upon people wishing to enter the country for short-term stays such as for business or personal visits or tourism, or for longer periods such as for study, employment, refugee resettlement or for immigration.
