Recently, the Safe City Innovation Research Group led by Assoc. Prof. Dr.Kowit Nambunmee from the School of Health Science, Mae Fah Luang University in collaboration with Asst. Prof. Dr.Ariya Svetamra from the Faculty of Social Sciences, Chiang Mai University; Prof. Dr.Laura Rozek from Georgetown University, USA; Assoc.

The workshop aimed to build understanding and raise awareness among women migrant workers about the importance of health and provide a screening test for Human Papillomavirus (HPV) which can lead to cervical cancer. This project, funded by Georgetown University, not only helped reduce inequality in access to healthcare, but also built a research network that contributes to fostering women’s empowerment and women’s health.
