  • Product Description

This book presents a cross-sectional study (undertaken at the College of Public Health Sciences, Chulalungkorn University) of HIV/AIDS Risk Behaviors among Myanmar Migrants in Bangkok’s Khao San Road tourism area. Quantitative analysis using chi-square test, odds ratio and 95% confidence interval were used to describe associations between variables from the sample gathered using the snow ball technique. A major high risk profile for HIV/AIDS among Myanmar migrants emerged within the study, the undereducated 25-29 year old blue collar worker with moderate knowledge of HIV/AIDS. Associations between socio-demographic factors, HIV/AIDS knowledge and the risk behaviors: visiting sex workers, alcohol consumption and drug use were analyzed and presented in this particular study. Based on the risk behaviors studied, the author recommends behavior change intervention in the form of increased access to health education among migrants and that further reaffirmation of this study’s findings be conducted through a broader longitudinal study on sexual attitudes and behavior of migrants.
