|State of Health of Migrants - 2005|
CARAM Asia's annual State of Health of Migration (SoH) research turns to the migrant community itself to define the current scenario in migrant access to health care and information. Through this report migrant workers played a part in shaping the future by contributing and sharing their experiences as well as suggesting changes to the policies affecting the migration process.
Thirteen countries participated in the research: they are Bangladesh, Cambodia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. The key features and strengths of the research is its role in promoting change through organizational learning, and the research process that worked effectively to link participation, social action, and knowledge generation. Drawing from country experiences, the State of Health research shows remarkable outcomes on its path, cutting across all countries and people involved, that holds promise for a better future in the struggle for accessing migrant's health.
CARAM Asia expects that the recommendations in this report will help trigger some significant actions at national as well regional level via the implementation of interventions relevant to migrant workers.
