Population mobility and HIV/AIDS in Indonesia

The aim of this study is to use existing information to provide a comprehensive picture of the levels, patters, composition and trends of the various types of contemporary population mobility occuring within Indonesia, as well as from and to the country. Insofar as it is possible using existing data, the study aims to indicate how population mobility in Indonesia is linked to the existing and likely futue diffusion of HIV/AIDS.

It finds that, while undoubtedly such a relationship exists, there is a dearth of existing research and knowledge not only into the nature of the relationship but also the location of the places where mobility is influencing and likely to influence the spread of HIV/AIDS.
