Migration, Mobility and HIV - A Rapid Assessment of Risks and Vulnerabilities in the Pacific. Connell J, Negin J, UNDP, et al (2010)

Migration MobilityandHIV UNDP and SPC 3.501

The objective of this report is to provide a rapid assessment of migration and mobility as key influences on the distribution and spread of HIV in the Pacific. While this has been established globally with targeted and tailored prevention programmes on mobility and HIV in a number of countries, the Pacific has yet to develop appropriate responses that take migration and mobility into consideration and ensure that HIV interventions address the drivers of mobility and the specific vulnerabilities that mobility creates.

Financing Healthcare for Migrants: A Case Study from Thailand 2009. IOM and WHO (2009)

Financing Healthcare for Migrants: A Case Study from Thailand 2009. IOM and WHO (2009) Thailand has a relatively well established public health system featuring the launch of universal health care coverage in 2002. The development of the public health system and healthcare financing has contributed significantly to an equitable service provision and financial contribution of the health care system. However, in the absence of official Thai status, stateless / displaced persons are excluded from the Universal Health Coverage Scheme (UC), despite the fact that they were previously covered by the Low Income or Health Card Scheme prior to the introduction of the UC policy.

HIV Transmission Potential among Local and Migrant Factory Workers in Kolkata, India. Deb AK, Saha MK, Deb M, et al (2009)

HIV Transmission Potential among Local and Migrant Factory Workers in Kolkata, India. Deb AK, Saha MK, Deb M, et al (2009) Migrant workers in India play a key role in the spread of HIV. Kolkata is a common destination for workers, who may acquire infection and transmit it to their wives and/or other sexual partners. We investigated sexual relations and condom use by factory workers. Migrant and local factory workers were randomly selected from five wards of Kolkata. Information was collected about demographic and socio-economic characteristics, sexual relationships, condom usage, and perceptions and intent to use condoms. Condom use was very low in both groups of workers, particularly among migrants. Many married workers visited female sex workers but never used con- doms. Few intended to use condoms, and if they did, it did not always translate into actual usage. There is great potential for transmission of HIV/sexually transmitted infections by these workers. Carefully designed interven- tion and education programs in the context of low literacy and cultural norms are urgently needed.
