About the product

Migrant and mobile workers in general often encounter individual and social factors that increase their vulnerability to sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. In addition, such workers often have inadequate access to health education, thus may lack basic information about HIV and AIDS. This report addresses HIV risk and programmes for one particular category of mobile worker: truck drivers.
