Abstract

The project seeks to explore the HIV risks of internal migrants working in the Zhu Jiang Delta, China’s most significant ‘export processing zone’. As China’s economic boom is built upon the backbones of internal migrants, HIV-AIDS has the potential to cause a public health crisis with a devastating economic impact. Using a multi-method approach the risks and approaches to mitigating the risks will be explored in this vulnerable population.
