Transport Workers at Risk to HIV Documenting Our Experience 2000-2004. CARE (2006)

Transport Workers at Risk to HIV Documenting Our Experience 2000-2004. CARE (2006) In 1995, CARE Bangladesh (CARE B) initiated an HIV/AIDS intervention program called Stopping HIV/ AIDS through Knowledge and Training Initiatives (SHAKTI), which was funded by the United Kingdom's Department for International Development (DFID), to improve HIV and AIDS programming in Bangladesh. Although the project originally targeted rickshaw pullers, after several strategy meetings it was decided to begin the HIV/AIDS prevention program with female sex workers. SHAKTI eventually expanded to include some of their (female sex workers) clients as an intervention target group. The sex workers identified rickshaw pullers and truckers, along with dockworkers, as their main clients. This formed the beginning of the Rastta Bondor project.

The challenge is enormous, and the impact of HIV/AIDS on the workforce is exacerbating the already diffi cult situation.

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) 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).
