SANAYAR-THI-PAN WOMEN’S CENTER

Sanayar-Thi-Pan Women’s Centre was formed in 2004 by Burmese migrant women in Thailand after participating in a self-help health care training coordinated by GAATW. Sanayar-Thi-Pan Women’s Centre addresses an important gap in healthcare services as most migrant women workers are excluded from mainstream healthcare services in Thailand due to lack of documentation, income insecurity and language barriers. The Women’s Centre is staffed by Burmese migrant women and has become a trusted community resource and refuge for the Burmese migrant community along the Thai-Burmese border. The women run a drop-in centre, provide health care and treatment (herbal remedies), provide counselling, offer refuge for women in need and also run an outreach programme offering mobile health care in factories and brothels. The Women’s Centre also provides direct assistance to women who have been abused or suffer serious health problems, and produces information on women’s health, migration and labour issues. Workers also teach women how to plant herbs for health treatments, assist women in locating employment, provide accompaniment to the police when necessary and assist women with returning to Burma if desired.

Strategic Thematic Direction

During 2011-13, through our Power in Migration and Work thematic programme, we engaged more directly with the migrant rights and labour rights movements. During 2014-2016 our work will build on the work of previous years; we will continue to push for a human rights based approach in anti-trafficking policies and practices.  We will also deepen our engagement with the issue of migration and labour.

The three thematic strategic issues outlined below are continuations of our work during 2011-13.

ACCOUNTABILITY Increasing the accountability of all anti-trafficking stakeholders involved in the design or implementation of anti-trafficking responses, towards the persons whose human rights they purport to protect.

ACCESS TO JUSTICE Broadening spaces for trafficked persons and migrant workers to practice their human rights by improving access to justice and combating all forms of discrimination that impact women’s ability to exercise their human rights as they relate to trafficking.

POWER IN MIGRATION AND WORK Centring an analysis of women’s power in their labour and migration to better assess migration and labour policies’ impact on women, and to work towards labour and migration processes that reflect migrants’ needs, aspirations and capabilities.
