CHIANG MAI – More than 80 migrant women attended a meeting in Chiang Mai last week aimed at improving the lives of female workers from Burma.

Women from various groups representing ethnic minorities, domestic workers, sex workers, labourers, youths and HIV sufferers attended the event at the Holiday Garden Hotel and Resort. Most were from the north of Thailand, but some had travelled from the south and central regions.

They discussed measures to improve the sexual and reproductive health rights of migrant women, and made recommendations that will be submitted to the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific as part of the Beijing +20 consultations. Read more here.
