Migrant Forum in Asia (MFA) welcomes the decision of the Special Rapporteur on Violence Against Women to produce a joint general comment on mistreatment and violence against women during reproductive health care. MFA looks forward to providing a contribution to the issue relating to the topic in the context of international migration and particularly regarding domestic workers. In this paper, we have compiled inputs of our members and partners on ground realities of reproductive healthcare practices in several countries in Asia including Lebanon, India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Malaysia, Taiwan, Japan, Philippines and Singapore12.
As an organisation based on migrant rights, MFA would like to expand the scope of this input on reproductive rights beyond service provision regarding healthcare, as the realities faced by migrant domestic workers are far more complex and begin at the country of origin. The paper would be looking at policies and grassroot level activities at the destination and origin country with a perspective of following throughout the migration process.
