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)

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.

Expanding Workplace HIV/AIDS Prevention Activities for a Highly Mobile Population. Horizons (2003)

Expanding Workplace HIV/AIDS Prevention Activities for a Highly Mobile Population. Horizons (2003) The HIV epidemic in Vietnam is growing, and promotion of prevention behavior among vulnerable populations, such as migrant workers, is becoming increasingly critical. In Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), the locus of the epidemic in Vietnam, efforts have been under way for several years to implement prevention efforts for migrant worker populations. Led by the HCMC AIDS Committee and HCMC Labor Union, the main activity has utilized volunteer health communicators (HC) to visit workplaces and conduct HIV education activities. However, these efforts have reached only a relatively small number of the intended audience, and the impact of the current program is unclear. Local authorities want to scale up their efforts but require information on the most effective and least costly activities, as well as their potential for scale up.

Sexual and Gender Based Violence against Refugees, Returnees and Internally Displaced Persons: Guidelines for Prevention and Response. UNHCR (2003) In every community in the world there are people who have been affected by acts of brutality. Atrocities committed by armed groups in conflict situations are often well publicized, while abuses committed behind closed doors in the confines of one’s own home often remain completely hidden. Refugees and internally displaced people, who do not enjoy the protection of their own governments, are among those most vulnerable to acts of violence, including sexual and gender-based violence.
