Tools - Released in 2001
This is a toolkit to guide the management and implementation of HIV prevention programmes for mobile populations in the Greater Mekong Subregion. It will be used by people and organisations who already have some experience in HIV prevention, and are now ready to address the specific challenges of working with mobile populations. Specifically, the toolkit addresses ways to work with mobile groups of construction workers, truck drivers, seafarers and migrant sex workers.
While the toolkit supports HIV prevention amongst mobile population groups, it also recognises that HIV is transmitted through interaction between mobile or migrant groups and the more stable communities they pass through, live in or return to. The toolkit therefore strongly recommends that effective HIV prevention will occur only when there are programmes for mobile groups and for the more stable communities with whom they interact.
