In Thailand, UNFPA is expanding its collaboration with the Ministry of Health and NGOs to ensure quality maternal and child health and family planning services in newly constructed communities for those displaced by the tsunami. These efforts will focus on improving access to information, counselling and services, at both health centres and mobile clinics, and on training health providers and community volunteers to provide trauma-related counselling and to address reproductive health concerns including safe motherhood, family planning, gender equality, HIV prevention, and adolescent health. The Fund will also help the World Vision Foundation of Thailand to meet reproductive health needs in Burmese migrant communities, which were among those most affected by the tsunami.

From there, she watched the flood smash fishing trawlers into houses and carry her neighbours away. more..
