The Effects of an HIV and AIDS Project on Migrants at Source and Destination Sites in Nepal, Bangladesh and India: Findings from a Quasi-experimental Study. Samuels F, Nino-Zarazua M, Sultana MM, et al. (2014)


While mobility itself is not seen as vulnerability factor for HIV infection, the unsafe conditions under which people migrate exposes them to a greater risk of infection. Not only do policies and programmes in receiving or host countries hinder migrants from accessing health and social services, but cultural factors and their legal status may contribute to the discrimination they face and act as a further barrier to accessing services. Difficult working conditions, loneliness and feelings of powerlessness, together with peer pressure, may lead migrants to engage in risky sexual behaviours that leave them vulnerable to HIV and AIDS.
