Migrants Programme

National AIDS Control Organization (NACO) considers migrants as an important population group for HIV prevention programming. Of the 120,000 estimated new infections in 2009, 41% are from low prevalence but high vulnerability states (NACO, 2009). Out of 156 high HIV prevalence districts, 34 districts are in seven low prevalence states, which account for 41% of new infections (NACO, 2011). Migration from these low prevalence States to higher prevalence destination places seems to be a major factor behind this increase in prevalence in hitherto low prevalence states.
