Chapter 2 Migration and Gender in China’s HIV/AIDS Epidemic M. Giovanna Merli, Jack DeWaard, Feng Tian and Sara Hertog Introduction China today is considered to be a low HIV prevalence country. 1% of the adult population. HIV infections tend to be concentrated in relatively well-defined population subgroups, such as injecting drug users (IDUs), former plasma and blood donors, and female sex workers (FSWs) and their clients. Despite this low HIV prevalence, the Chinese HIV epidemic is considered to be in the stage of “rapid spread” (Grusky et al.

1993; Seidlin et al. 1993; Ahmed et al. 2001). Results To illustrate the unique implications of migration for the spread of HIV in China, we place migration within a framework of demographic gender imbalances and simulate its contribution to the sexual partnership market under different patterns of migration and in the absence thereof. We then model the spread of HIV in the absence and presence of migration and migration-associated sexual risk behaviors, such as a rise in migrants’ rates of partner change.

This underreporting becomes evident when producing projections of the Chinese population based on the beginning year of 1990. If we choose a rather high fertility level from our distribution of the 2000 TFRs, we also need to choose a size of the youngest age group that is comparatively larger because it was produced by higher fertility rates earlier. In order to deal with this consistency issue between the chosen level of TFR and the size of the youngest age groups, we designed a specific method that calculates a separate age distribution for the year 2000 for each of 1,000 separate simulations.
