Mobility is not a new phenomenon in South Asia, and national, regional and international mobility is on the rise. Over the last few decades the demand for labour from India’s growing economy, in particular, has pulled people from neighbouring countries: Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The rise of HIV in the region is also not a new phenomenon: current HIV trends reveal that South Asia is home to 2 to 3.5 million of the estimated 33.3 million people living with HIV (PLHIV) worldwide (UNDP, 2010) and the sheer numbers of PLHIV in the region make HIV a major public health concern.
