Abstract

"To effectively evaluate a project supported by UNDP South East Asia HIV and Development Programme in Ruili, Yunnan Province, South West China, it was necessary to identify major population movements which were driven by development and which contribute to HIV epidemics. This evaluation was based on review of project documents and interviews with authorities and project staff in Ruili. Most of the work on population movements and HIV/AIDS in South East Asia have been at the macro level, e.g. between sending, transit and receiving areas or hot spots along major highways. It is therefore of interest to present the results of the Ruili evaluation, which complements these other works, by focusing on a smaller scale and identifying the population flows which intersect in the city."
