Delegation travels to Prey Veng to discuss migrant healthcare

Officials serving on the National Committee for Counter Trafficking (NCCT) and representatives from other institutions went on a fact-finding mission to Prey Veng province on December 3 to better understand the challenges faced by migrant workers during the pandemic.

The trip was led by Ministry of Interior secretary of state and permanent vice-chair of the NCCT Chou Bun Neng, with other government officials and representatives from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) participating as well.

While on the trip discussions were held with health officials who provided healthcare to migrant workers in Prey Veng province when they returned en masse from abroad due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The delegation also exchanged views with provincial officials on legal procedures established at the national level such as the Migrant Health Policy endorsed by the Ministry of Health and put into implementation recently.

The officials also had discussions on migrant worker recruitment based on the ethical principles and the dangers posed by employment brokers, especially in regards to employment in Thailand.
