Policy Brief No. 6 (2013) | The Right to Health of Low Skilled Migrant Workers

The social and economic characteristics of low skilled migrant workers are the most significant determinants of their health. The poor and unequal conditions under which they migrate, live, work and age have a fundamental impact on their health. Migrant Forum in Asia (MFA) has been advocating for the protection and promotion of migrants rights for many years to address rights violations, which are largely responsible for the conditions that create and contribute to their ill health. MFA began specifically calling for action to address migrant workers health under the rubric of Right to Health in 2002.
