CARAM Asia is a regional network working on migration and health issues. Formed in 1997, it has developed into a network of members spread across South East Asia, North East Asia, the Gulf and  Middle East. It is an NGO in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.

Four key thrusts and pillars which provide momentum to CARAM Asia programmes are Participatory Action Research (PAR), national and regional advocacy, coalition building and capacity building for CBOs and NGOs working with migrant communities. These approaches provide an impetus for the development of research, publications, campaigns and policy prescriptions for CARAM Asia programmes.

Mission and Vision


EMPOWER: To empower migrants, their families and communities throughout the migration process and build capacities of community based organisations (CBOs) and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) working for the promotion and protection of migrants’ health rights including sexual and reproductive health rights.

EVIDENCE BASED: To utilise Participatory Action Research (PAR) to ensure inclusion of migrant voices and perspectives on HIV vulnerabilities, migrant health status and potential policy prescriptions for effective national and regional advocacy.

RIGHTS BASED: To use the rights based approach in promoting and protecting migrant health through interventions to reduce all vulnerabilities and improve social determinants of health throughout the migration process.


All people have the right to stay or move and live and work in dignity with equal rights in a society, where their quality of life is ensured.
