Executive Summary: Self-Care & Health Care: How Migrant Women in the Greater Mekong Subregion Take Care of their Health

Mekong Migration Network (MMN) launched a new report, Self-Care & Health Care: How Migrant Women in the Greater Mekong Subregion Take Care of their Health on 27th May 2015.

With the support of the United Nations Development Programme, MMN project partners in all countries of the GMS interviewed 114 migrant women to find out how women take care of their own health, what prevention measures and self-treatment measures they take, and how they make decisions about when to self-treat, to seek advice from a pharmacy, or to see a doctor. This study looked at factors that affect their ability to look after their health – whether through self-care or formal health care.

The executive summary of the report is available as a separate pdf in English and six Mekong languages. It is also available in print in all seven languages.
