HIV doesn’t stop at borders: A human rights approach to protect migrant and cross-border workers
ILO - June 2011.

Most of them have little or no access to social protection and health services. ILO/AIDS programmes cover international as well as internal migrant and mobile workers. This is a thematic update on HIV and Migration from the ILO.

Decent Work for Domestic Workers Presentation
This is a power point presentation on Decent work for domestic workers - Proposed Conclusions with a view to possible international labour standards from the ILO Conditions of Work and Employment Programme (TRAVAIL). Domestic workers may cook, clean, take care of children, the elderly, or the disabled, even domestic animals. They comprise mainly women. Domestic workers may also work as gardeners or guardians in private homes or as family chauffeurs. In recent decades, domestic work has become one of the most important sources of labour for female migrant workers. Despite encouraging developments in some countries, the majority of domestic workers remain overworked, underpaid and unprotected. Existing international labour standards do not offer adequate guidance on how to address the specific circumstances of domestic work. In March 2008, the ILO Governing Body agreed to include a standard-setting activity on decent work for domestic workers on the agenda of the 99th Session (2010) of the International Labour Conference. In preparation to this, a number of reports will be drafted and submitted to ILO member States (see calendar of reports). In June 2010, the ILC decided on the form of the draft instruments: a Convention supplemented by a Recommendation. In 2011, the ILC will discuss the standards with a view to adopting them.
