On Gender, Migration and HIV

Within southern Africa, livelihoods are increasingly based on mobility, with the search for income opportunities in different locations and sectors seen by many as a sound risk management strategy. Poverty and exploitation, separation from regular partners and social norms, and a lack of access to HIV prevention and care programmes make migrants and mobile workers vulnerable to HIV infection.

Mobility, and the loneliness and isolation this generates, especially contributes to the phenomenon of multiple concurrent sexual partners, which is arguably one of the leading drivers of HIV within southern Africa.
