Protecting People on the Move: Applying Lessons Learned in Asia to Improve HIV/AIDS Interventions for Mobile People.

They include socio- economic motives, occupational pursuits, exploration, exploitation and displacement as a result of conflict, disaster, or national policies.

Transport Workers at Risk to HIV Documenting Our Experience 2000-2004. CARE (2006)

Transport Workers at Risk to HIV Documenting Our Experience 2000-2004. CARE (2006) In 1995, CARE Bangladesh (CARE B) initiated an HIV/AIDS intervention program called Stopping HIV/ AIDS through Knowledge and Training Initiatives (SHAKTI), which was funded by the United Kingdom's Department for International Development (DFID), to improve HIV and AIDS programming in Bangladesh. Although the project originally targeted rickshaw pullers, after several strategy meetings it was decided to begin the HIV/AIDS prevention program with female sex workers. SHAKTI eventually expanded to include some of their (female sex workers) clients as an intervention target group. The sex workers identified rickshaw pullers and truckers, along with dockworkers, as their main clients. This formed the beginning of the Rastta Bondor project.

Migrants’ Health and Vulnerability to HIV/AIDS in Thailand - Phamit (2005)

Migrant Health and HIV Vulnerability in Thailand (Phamit)

Migrants’ situation in Thailand is precarious. Due to their tenuous legal status and numerous barriers that limit access to health services and legal mechanisms, migrants endure poor working and living conditions without being able to receive full or proper treatment for related health conditions. With a sense of loss of control over their life, and without being able to access health information and services in their own language, migrants’ vulnerability to HIV and other reproductive health conditions increases, as does their susceptibility to contagious diseases and other health problems.
