Migration, Youth and HIV Risk: A Study of Young Men in Rural Jharkhand

This article analyses the sexual practices of young migrant and non-migrant men in Palamu district of Jharkhand in the context of hiv awareness. Based on a field study and using statistical analyses, the authors find that, contrary to popular stereotype, both migrant and non-migrant youth lack hiv awareness and practise "risky" sexual behaviour. They argue that hiv awareness policy must sensitise itself to the prevalence of "sexual networks" and concentrate advocacy drives in these areas.
