Abstract :

Introduction: Migrants are at risk of HIV-infection and transmission to their spouses. Therefore, migrant interventions should also address spouses of migrants in the place of origin. USAID PHFI-PIPPSE project is supporting National AIDS Control Organization in developing a comprehensive strategy for migrants at source and destination states. Methodology & Theoretical Orientation: A cross-sectional survey was conducted in 2014 among 880 Currently Married Women (CMW) aged 15-49 years from high out migrant districts, i.e., Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh (State) and Cuttack in Odisha (State). In this paper, bi-variate and multivariate logistic regression methods have been used to investigate the association between exposure to intervention services and the safe sexual behaviour among CMW at source states. Findings: In bivariate analysis, there is statistically significant and positive association between exposure to interventions and safe sex measures-HIV/AIDS testing and condom use. However after controlling the socio-economic and demographic variables, we found that majority of the intervention variables are not significantly associated with condom use and with HIV/ AIDS testing. But, ├ó┬?┬?attending the health and nutrition day meeting├ó┬?┬Ł [OR=1.036, p<0.05, CI (1.005-1.067)] is positively associated with HIV/AIDS testing among women and there is negative significant association between receiving HIV counselling service [OR=0.969, p<0.05, CI (0.938-1.001)] and condom use. Conclusion: The results corroborate that exposure to intervention not always leads to the safe sexual behaviour among CMW. The findings raise question on quality of exposure that women received on HIV/AIDS prevention at source states. An urgent intervention with ensured quality services is needed to promote safe sexual behaviour among CMW having migrant or returned migrant husbands at source states.
