HIV/STI Risk among Latino Migrant Men in New Receiving Communities

Abstract

Migration has long been implicated in the spread of HIV/STI by bridging populations with low and high prevalence. The study of STI/HIV risk behaviors among mobile and immigrant groups, particularly those in new receiving communities, has not received adequate attention in public health. This chapter synthesizes the literature on what is known regarding sex and drugrelated HIV risk and morbidity in this population, and on the individual, cultural, and environmental factors that have been identified as barriers or facilitators of risk. We focus particularly on risk networks as an important social-environmental factor that can either promote or prevent HIV risk behavior, and illustrate this concept by presenting data from a cohort of Latino migrants in postdisaster New Orleans.
