Goal 11. Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable

MTC is a community-based organisation (CBO) that provides and advocates for an equitable and essential health system, education and protection for vulnerable and displaced people living in the Thai-Burma border area and Eastern Burma. MTC addresses the needs and human rights of these people through comprehensive programmes and a collaborative approach with local, national, international and government bodies.

MTC actively works with other CBO partners to improve access to information and services available in their community. The Community Health Outreach team participated with MRPWG (Migrant Rights Promotion Working Group) to provide updated information on migrant issues especially protection including labour rights, prevention of child labour, birth registration, work permits and Thai health insurance.

One of our strategic goals is to provide opportunities for MTC staff and partner organisations to obtain recognised qualifications which both reinforce their status and offer them greater vocational opportunities. We strongly believe that training and education programs ensure that health workers can apply their acquired skills to build their own communities.
