Organization: Southeast Asian Consortium on Gender, Sexuality and Health
In this satellite session, we will explore about current situation of commodification over human body in term of sexuality and health from Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, and Thailand. Politics of body modification have generated particularly intense controversy. Commodification of human body has been arising as inescapably and seriously harmful to sexual health. Treated them less human and put them as object, bring marginalized population; transmen, female fetus, and migrant worker have less choice facing exploitation in commodification. In further, we wish to decrease the gap in commodification of sexuality and health.
