Report Calls for Countries in S. Asia to Step Up HIV/AIDS Support Services for Migrants

November 30, 2010

A report released by the U.N. Development Program (UNDP), UNAIDS and the International Labour Organization on Tuesday highlights the failure of HIV/AIDS programs in South Asia to reach populations migrating to the region and calls upon governments to do more for such populations, IANS/Sify News reports (11/30). "Among the report's recommendations are safe mobility and migration under international labour standards and conventions; non-discrimination and protection against abuse and other human rights violations; minimum wage and gender equity; improved access to HIV services, welfare, security and safety as well as information, counseling services and legal aid; and protection from deportation on grounds of HIV positive status," according to a UNDP press release (.pdf) (11/30).
