Abstract “Working Our Way Back Home,” a new report by the Mae Tao Clinic, an OSI grantee, aims to raise awareness of the reproductive health issues facing Burmese migrant women in Thailand. Informed by extensive data, the in-depth study examines the causes and consequences of highly prevalent unsafe abortion practices among Burmese migrant women. The report, the first to directly deal with sexual health issues among Burmese women, concludes with a series of recommendations intended for the Burmese community and Thai government and health officials alike.“Working conditions are not supportive of traditional community and family mechanisms and behaviors,” Cynthia Maung writes in the report. “It becomes difficult for women to address their domestic problems effectively.”
