Integrated Biological and Behavioral Surveillance Survey among Wives of Migrant Laborers in Four Districts of Far-Western Regions of Nepal: Round I -2008. USAID, Advancing Surveillance Policies Prevention Care and Support to Fight HIV/AIDS AND National Centre for AIDS and STD Control Nepal (2008) This report presents the findings of the first round of the Integrated Biological and Behavioral Surveillance Survey (IBBS) of wives of migrant laborers in West to Far-Western Nepal. This study is based on surveys of 400 spouses of those migrant laborers in the four districts of Achham, Doti, Kanchanpur, and Kailali who temporarily migrate or had migrated to India to work as laborers. The survey was conducted among the wives or widows of current or ex- labor migrants to India aged 16 years or over, whose spouse had spent at least three months in India and who had retuned to Nepal at least once in the last three years. The survey measured the prevalence of HIV among the study population. It also looked at multiple factors associated with risks for HIV infection, including condom use, sexual behavior, knowledge of HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), STI treatment history, exposure to HIV/AIDS awareness messages, and alcohol/drug use habits.

Health without Borders: Improving Health and Reducing HIV/AIDS Vulnerability among Long-Distance Road Transport Workers through a Multi-sectoral Approach. Health without Borders and UNESCAP (2007)

Health without Borders: Improving Health and Reducing HIV/AIDS Vulnerability among Long-Distance Road Transport Workers through a Multi-sectoral Approach. Health without Borders and UNESCAP (2007) Long distance road transport workers are vulnerable to an array of health risks. Substance use, unprotected sex, unsafe roads, poor diets, long working hours and long absence from home are but some of the documented factors that lead to numerous communicable and non-communicable diseases and accidents. Importantly, the rapid spread of HIV across communities, countries and continents is a testimony to the linkages between mobile and migrant groups, such as road transport workers, and the growing epidemic.

Human Trafficking and HIV: Exploring Vulnerabilities and Responses in South Asia. UNDP (2007)

Human Trafficking and HIV: Exploring Vulnerabilities and Responses in South Asia. UNDP (2007) Human trafficking generates billions of dollars for organized crime. It is considered the third largest source of funding, preceded only by drugs and guns.3 In South Asian countries, trafficking has increased drastically over the past several decades. Due to its clandestine nature, there are no precise statistics on the extent of the problem. However, it is reported that South Asia has the second- largest number of internationally trafficked persons in the world. It is assumed that millions of women, in particular, have been trafficked across borders and within countries. Overall, it is estimated that 150,000- 200,000 people from South Asia are trafficked annually.

Population Mobility and Spread of HIV across the Indo-Nepal Border. Nepal B (2007)

Population Mobility and Spread of HIV across the Indo-Nepal Border. Nepal B (2007) The article reviews information on the epidemiology of HIV/AIDS and behavioural networking to examine the role of population mobility in spreading HIV across the Indo-Nepal border. Documents were collected through a systematic search of electronic databases and web-based information resources, and the review focuses on studies about types of the virus, prevalence of HIV, and sexual and injecting networking. HIV-1 (subtype C) and HIV-2 were identified in Nepal. The prevalence of HIV was higher among male labour migrants and female sex workers (FSWs) who returned from India, especially from Mumbai, than in similar non-migrant groups.

The TA was programmed in connection with the ADB-financed Road Rehabilitation-2 project 2 Consultations with nongovernment HIV and AIDS prevention and other development partners indicated potential risks and shortcomings in current efforts to mitigate these risks. ADB conducted fact-finding in June 2007 and agreed with the Government on the overall TA support and implementation arrangements. The design and monitoring framework is in Appendix 1.
