Summary
This book brings together seven research studies to provide a profile of the HIV prevention, surveillance, and treatment needs of migrant workers. Mishra, Conner, and Magana combine their own extensive work with that of nationally and internationally recognized experts to provide a comprehensive analysis of the HIV epidemic among migrants workers, looking at perceptions of risk, sexual beliefs and practices, effects of migration on changing risk profiles, prevention efforts, and policies and programs that may stem the spread of HIV among this population. The book is notable for including, in addition to researchers' views, the perspectives of migrant workers and policymakers on HIV prevention policies and programs. It will be a valuable text for introductory and advanced courses on public health, Latino studies, and research methods, as well as a useful reference for migrant health services providers, researchers, and policymakers
