IOM-MPI Issue in Brief No. 2 - Asian Labour Migrants and Health: Exploring Policy Routes. Calderon J, Rijks B and Agunias DR (2012)

Issue Brief_Migrants_and_health

Migrant health issues have risen on the agenda of policymakers in the Asia-Pacific region in recent years, generating momentum at the very highest levels of government. The challenge now is how to translate this momentum into visible changes on the ground. Despite progress on both policy and programmatic fronts, Asian migrant workers continue to face challenges in accessing health facilities and services at all stages of migration – before departure, while in transit, at destination and upon return.

GMSMOU Consultation_Meeting_Report_2012-1

The key formal output of this meeting is an agreed Joint Action Plan, built from the draft JAP produced in September 2011, which will be presented for endorsement during the 11th Meeting of GMS Working Group on Human Resource Development, to be held in Myanmar on 4-5 October 2012. In addition, the joint priorities detailed in the JAP now provide a useful tool to assist participating government and civil society representatives from the GMS region to make a more coordinated effort to address HIV Vulnerability related to population movement. Participants’ identification of key challenges and gaps in access and provision of health and HIV services for migrants in the region will also assist ADB and UNDP APRC, through JUNIMA, to identify priority areas for further collaboration.

Review of New NSPs in Asia and the Pacific Region. UNAIDS RST and the Regional HIV and AIDS Data Hub (2012)


According to a UNAIDS Regional Support Team (RST) baseline analysis at the end of 2009, 16 Asian countries and 7 countries in the Pacific region were expected to be developing new National Strategic Plans (NSPs) during the 2010‐2011 biennium1.

An analysis in 2008 of the previous round of NSPs of 18 countries found that 15 were not targeted for an effective HIV response: they lacked appropriate prioritization of populations and sub‐regions; did not specify elements of effective interventions for implementation; had no monitoring and evaluation systems built in; and lacked resource estimates, and costed operational plans (Regional Training Workshop On Costing NSPs in Asia‐Pacific, UNAIDS‐ADB‐World Bank‐ASAP‐UNDP, Sept. 2008).
