Abstract

"The purpose of the ASEAN Workshop on population movement and HIV vulnerability is to present an alternative systems approach in assessing the interrelationship between population mobility and HIV vulnerability which moves beyond the traditional perspective of migrants and HIV/AIDS by examining both internal and international mobility. Those two types of mobility can be interlinked, and jointly, can contribute to the HIV vulnerability for those mobile groups, the source communities they come from, and the host communities with which they come in contact." "The workshop objective was to formulate joint action plans among clusters of countries in South-East Asia with the purpose of countering the HIV vulnerability associated with population movement. This Report summarizes the workshop proceedings, including the proposed action plans and recommendations that were developed and subsequently fully endorsed by the ASEAN Task Force on AIDS at its 7th meeting, 16th-18th November 1999."
