Mobility and HIV risk across the Papua New Guiniea/Indonesia border

The aim of this project is to examine the relationship between mobility across the border between Indonesia and Papua New Guinea and HIV risk. Specific objectives are to understand the relationship between HIV risk and: the patterns of border crossing; the sexual behaviour of border crossers at home and over the border; the role of culture and commerce, and; the availability of and access to health services.
