Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To analyze the HIV/AIDS epidemics situation among migrant population.

METHODS:

Data on HIV/AIDS cases among mobile population through case reporting system was collected from 2008 to 2011.

RESULTS:

The number of reported cases on HIV/AIDS among mobile population had been rising, with proportions of the total reported cases increased from 10.2% in 2008, to 18.2% in 2011. Sexual contacts continued to be the major route of transmission. With the increasing proportion of homosexual transmission, HIV/AIDS cases among mobile population moved from high HIV-prevalence areas in the western and central parts to low HIV-prevalence areas in the eastern part of the country.

CONCLUSION:

In recent years, the number of HIV/AIDS cases among mobile population was increasing in the case reporting system. Data showed that some male rural migrants had been engaged in commercial sex activities that called for more effective intervention measures to be taken to reduce the new HIV/AIDS infections in the migrant population.
