Abstract

This article demonstrates how the spread of HIV/AIDS in Mozambique may gave been affected by internal and external population movements which, in turn, contributed to the pronounced regional differences in adult HIV prevalence among the three regions of the country observed today. Further population movement may put certain individuals at higher risk of HIV infection but, even if these movements were to stop, in the absence of effective interventions to prevent new infections, HIV prevalence would remain high and perhaps continue to rise. The current regional differences in HIV prevalence and duration of the epidemic present different challenges for the development and implementation of prevention and mitigation services.
