Population Movements and the Spread of HIV/AIDS in Mozambique

Author: KAREN F. FOREIT, AVERTINO T.L. BARRETO P. ANTONIO NOYA ISABEL, and NHATAVE
Published in JHHSA, Vol. 24 No. 3

This article demonstrates how the spread of HIV AIDS in Mozambique may
gave been affected by internal and external population movements which, in
turn, contributed to the pronounced regional differences in adult HIV
prevalence among the three regions of the country observed today. Further
population movement may put certain individuals at higher risk ot HIV
infection but, even if these movements were to stop, in the absence of
effective interventions to prevent new infections, HIV prevalence would
remain high and perhaps continue to rise. The current regional differences in
HIV prevalence and duration of the epidemic present different challenges
for the development and implementation of prevention and mitigation
services.
