"Labour migration to India has historically been an important economic resource for Nepalese communities. A combination of rural poverty and political instability drive many Nepalese men south across the open border with India to take the most menial jobs for low wages with no job security. Living away from their families for long periods of time, many are susceptible to high risk sexual behavior and end up contracting HIV. Understanding of sexual health issues is poor. On returning home for rare visits some pass the disease to their wives, Far Western Nepal, from where the majority of economic migrants to Mumbai originate, is reeling under the impact of an HIV micro-epidemic. Interviews with migrants, health officials and politicians build a complex picture of the difficulties of contemporary Nepal in its ambivalent but interdependent relationship with its larger neighbour, and the unintended social consequences of that exchange."
