HIV/AIDS and migration

Hayes, Anna (2013) HIV/AIDS and migration. In: The encyclopedia of global human migration. John Wiley & Sons, Inc., Hoboken, NJ. United States. ISBN 978-1-4443-3489-0


Migration and the movement of peoples can facilitate wider transmission of epidemics and infectious diseases, spreading pathogens far beyond the original source of the infection. As a result of increased global migration and the movement of people in the contemporary era, the transmission of infectious diseases and epidemics such as HIV/AIDS, have demonstrated the potential links that exist between migration and international travel and the spread of communicable diseases. Domestic and international labor migration can both increase HIV vulnerability among people who otherwise may not fit into a traditional HIV 'high risk' category. Therefore, it is important to consider what fuels this vulnerability and just how labor migration, health and HIV/AIDS have increasingly become connected.
