The phenomenon of “... Read more

New transportation infrastructure and the emergence of transport and economic corridors in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) have led to better connectivity and regional economic integration, the creation of new jobs, and new and complex patterns of internal and cross-border migration. These developments, however, can also have negative out-comes. One is increased vulnerability to HIV infection, particularly along transport corridors and cross-border areas.
