for an expert in youth reproductive health
to develop materials and conduct awareness trainings for adolescents at 6 villages
Stateless/Ethnic Minority Health and Integration Project (SHIP), Chiang Rai Province, Thailand
ADRA Thailand is a humanitarian organization delivering relief and assistance to people in need across Thailand. With a physical presence in six provinces, our work focuses on areas such as human trafficking, human rights, education, livelihoods and health. ADRA works with people in poverty and distress to create just and positive change through empowering partnerships and responsible actions.
The Stateless/Ethnic Minority Health and Integration Project(SHIP) is designed to respond to the needs of remote target villages which are home to a sizeable stateless population within a wider minority tribal population. Adolescent girls have a high rate of pregnancy. Impoverished grandparents take on childcare responsibilities along with low-paying livelihoods, while youth migrate to the cities. This complex situation leads to a high probability for poverty/trafficking vulnerability. Poverty is exacerbated by remoteness which limits access to health services and increases the expense for medical or preventive health related transport. Village residents rely on limited services, often medicating themselves with inappropriate and expensive pharmaceuticals and forgo important basic and preventive Maternal and Child Health (MCH) services and care. Building on the gains from the work of the Protection Against Trafficking in Hill tribe Communities (PATH) particularly in the villages of Mae Kham Noi, Pong Hi and Hua Kra which are among the target communities, the project focuses primarily on improving childcare and increased basic health care services as well as sensitization on child rights, trafficking and statelessness.
The project is made possible with funding through the foundations Else Kröner-Fresenius-Stiftung and Stiftung Kinderzukunft and joint collaboration with the Sub-District Administration Office and the Health Promotion Centres.
