Population Mobility and AIDS - UNAIDS Technical Update. UNAIDS (2001)

Population Mobility and AIDS - UNAIDS Technical Update. UNAIDS (2001) Migration, mobility, and HIV/AIDS are major global phenomena at the beginning of the new millennium. Since the start of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, a concern of governments has been that people moving between countries might be spreading HIV. Today, however, there is increasing recognition that migrants and mobile people may be more vulnerable to HIV/AIDS than are populations that do not move. They may acquire HIV while on the move, and take the infection back with them when they return home, often without even knowing it. They also face greater obstacles in accessing care and support if living with HIV or AIDS.

Prevention of Trafficking and the Care and Support of Trafficked Persons. The Asia Foundation and Horizons Project Population Council (2001)

Prevention of Trafficking and the Care and Support of Trafficked Persons. The Asia Foundation and Horizons Project Population Council (2001) In recent years, millions of women and girls have been trafficked across borders and within countries. The global trafficking industry generates an estimated five to seven billion U.S. dollars each year, more than the profits generated by the arms and narcotics trades (Widgren 1994). Over the last decade, the growing trafficking problem in South Asia has been recognized. Nepal and Bangladesh have been designated as “sending” countries or countries of origin in the regional web of trafficking. India and Pakistan are usually referred to as countries of “transit” or “destination.” Girls and women are trafficked within country boundaries, to other countries within the region, and acros s regions and continents beyond South Asia.

HIV/AIDS Mobility and HIV/AIDS in the Greater Mekong Subregion. Chantavanich, S (2000)

HIV/AIDS Mobility and HIV/AIDS in the Greater Mekong Subregion. Chantavanich, S (2000) The Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), comprising Cambodia, Lao PDR People’s Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Vietnam, Thailand and Yunnan Province of PRC, shares the water resources of over 3,000 miles of the Mekong River. This river has become a new symbol of unity in a region emerging out of decades of civil wars escalating into regional and international conflicts and the cold-war era. In the geopolitics of the GMS, Thailand is an economic front runner and China is the major power broker. Most of the GMS is in transition from a rigid communism to socialism operating on market economy mechanisms. This is opening up new opportunities and choices for once politically or geographically marginalised communities. The political stability over two or three decades has been threatened by conflict in Cambodia in recent years, but of greater concern today is the ongoing political instability in Myanmar.

Migrant Populations and HIV/AIDS - The Development and Implementation of Programmes: Theory, Methodology and Practice. UNESCO and UNAIDS (2000)

Migrant Populations and HIV/AIDS - The Development and Implementation of Programmes:Theory, Methodology and Practice. UNESCO and UNAIDS (2000) This publication is based on the experience of the authors and of other researchers and programme developers with various migrant populations in Israel in HIV/AIDS prevention and the related fields of sexual health and sex education. Examples are drawn from the work with two recent waves of immigration from Ethiopia and the former USSR to Israel. Observations were made on similarities between the migrant populations as well as on their unique characteristics in inter- action with a host culture. This resulted in developing culturally sensitive HIV/AIDS prevention programmes while responding to the general needs of the migrant populations.
