HIV is key issue of concern with migration
International labour migration, or the movement of people across national borders for employment, is a growing phenomenon and an increasingly important aspect of global, regional and national economies. However, HIV has become a key issue of concern with cross border and overseas migration. Migrant workers are more vulnerable to HIV and other health issues than the general population and often lack access to necessary health services.
Inform and empower HIV positive migrant workers
CARAM Asia supports migrant workers and their allies to respond to the growing global phenomenon of migration. CARAM Asia emphasizes a regional approach when addressing migration, HIV and migrant’s health, since labor migration involves sending, transit and destination countries. With RCNF funds CARAM Asia enhanced programs that inform and empower HIV positive migrant workers, their spouses and family members.
