Migration Health Research Podcast No. 4 (Migration Health Research Bulletin #17)
Dr. Francis Mulekya, Migration Health Coordinator based in IOM Pretoria talks about the stories of change and best practices pertaining to sexual and reproductive health rights in Southern Africa. And Dr. Aiko Kaji, Migration Health Project Development and Implementation Officer based in IOM Hanoi, speaks about the migrant health status in Viet Nam.


‘SRHR-HIV Knows No Borders’ has been designed as a holistic, regional project to improve sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and HIV-related outcomes amongst migrants (including migrant adolescents, young people and sex workers), as well as non-migrant adolescents, young people, sex workers and others living in migrationaffected communities. It is being implemented in selected high-volume migration-affected communities, including border communities, in all six countries. 

This report represents one component of the project’s efforts to document a selection of the many stories of change and the associated best practices emerging from the project. The collection of stories and best practices is designed to be shared externally, with other partners and key stakeholders, and with project teams across the countries to enhance internal learning. These stories of change and best practices are also intended as a signpost to mark project approaches and interventions that have potential for both sustainability and scalability. 

These stories of change and best practices represent a diverse selection, in terms of geographic representation, targeted beneficiaries, level of intervention and outcomes. Taken together, they demonstrate a human rights -based project that is taking both an upstream and downstream approach, engaging widely with key stakeholders at local, national and regional levels and effectively utilising an intersectoral approach to create an enabling environment for target populations to access SRHR-HIV and related services.
