UNAIDS/IOM Statement on HIV/AIDS Related Travel Restrictions. UNAIDS and IOM (2004)

UNAIDS/IOM Statement on HIV/AIDS Related Travel Restrictions. UNAIDS and IOM (2004) Since the very beginning of the AIDS epidemic, countries have established travel restrictions in an effort to prevent the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) from crossing their borders. Such measures include mandatory HIV testing for persons seeking entry to the country and the requirement that would-be entrants declare themselves to be uninfected. Based on these mandatory tests and declarations, a number of countries have excluded from entry people living with HIV or people suspected of being infected. Restrictions have been imposed upon people wishing to enter the country for short-term stays such as for business or personal visits or tourism, or for longer periods such as for study, employment, refugee resettlement or for immigration.

Expanding Workplace HIV/AIDS Prevention Activities for a Highly Mobile Population. Horizons (2003)

Expanding Workplace HIV/AIDS Prevention Activities for a Highly Mobile Population. Horizons (2003) The HIV epidemic in Vietnam is growing, and promotion of prevention behavior among vulnerable populations, such as migrant workers, is becoming increasingly critical. In Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), the locus of the epidemic in Vietnam, efforts have been under way for several years to implement prevention efforts for migrant worker populations. Led by the HCMC AIDS Committee and HCMC Labor Union, the main activity has utilized volunteer health communicators (HC) to visit workplaces and conduct HIV education activities. However, these efforts have reached only a relatively small number of the intended audience, and the impact of the current program is unclear. Local authorities want to scale up their efforts but require information on the most effective and least costly activities, as well as their potential for scale up.

Sexual and Gender Based Violence against Refugees, Returnees and Internally Displaced Persons: Guidelines for Prevention and Response. UNHCR (2003)

Sexual and Gender Based Violence against Refugees, Returnees and Internally Displaced Persons: Guidelines for Prevention and Response. UNHCR (2003) In every community in the world there are people who have been affected by acts of brutality. Atrocities committed by armed groups in conflict situations are often well publicized, while abuses committed behind closed doors in the confines of one’s own home often remain completely hidden. Refugees and internally displaced people, who do not enjoy the protection of their own governments, are among those most vulnerable to acts of violence, including sexual and gender-based violence.

HIV/STD Prevalence and Risk Factors among Migrant and Non-Migrant Males of Achham District in Far-Western Nepal: Volume 1. FHI (2002)

This study was carried out to determine HIV/STIs prevalence rates among both migrants and non-migrants males from four VDCs around the Sanfebagar valley of Achham district in far-western Nepal. The objectives of this study were also to measure the extent of relationship between the prevalence rates and risk behavior and to ascertain the extent of linkage between migration and HIV/STI transmission in the area.

Data for this study was collected from a total of 610 males who were from 800 randomly selected households. From all respondents an oral informed consent was taken before conducting the individual interviews in a private setting. The pathological tests of the specimens were carried out in the central laboratories of SACTS Kathmandu and Auroprobe New Delhi.

Mobile Populations and HIV Vulnerability: Selected Responses in South East Asia. UNOPS and UNDP (2002)

Mobile Populations and HIV Vulnerability: Selected Responses in South East Asia. UNOPS and UNDP (2002) In spite of recent decades of unprecedented economic growth and industrialization in South East Asia, the bulk of economic activity is still based on agricultural production in rural areas. While urbanization continues to be a key demographic trend, most people still live in rural areas working in the agricultural sector. This is especially the case for Cambodia where an estimated 11.5 million people, or 80 per cent of the population, are living and working in rural areas. In Cambodia, as elsewhere in South East Asia, rural populations, due to their sheer size, must be at the center of any effective national programme to mitigate the socio-economic impact of HIV/AIDS.

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.
