"Migrant workers lack awareness on HIV"

Staff Reporter

CHENNAI: Unskilled Indian labourers in Asian and Gulf countries were the subject of discussion at the consultation meeting on "State of the Indian migrants and their vulnerability to HIV/AIDS" organised by the Arunodhaya-Migrants Initiative at the YWCA premises on Friday. The organisation has published a study on HIV awareness levels among potential migrants, returnees and spouses of migrants in and around Kalpakkam.

The study, conducted by Migrants Forum in 2000, concludes that the unskilled migrant population comes from the bottom of the caste hierarchy and has minimal access to information on HIV.
