dc.description.abstractThis study investigates the links between human-immuno deficiency virus (HIV) acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), migration, and rural enterprises. We establish a strong positive statistical relationship between migration and HIV/AIDS. Given this relationship, we explore economic interventions to reduce the level of out-migration from rural villages. Using a case study of Northeast Thailand, our study focuses on the impact of emerging rural industry in raising household incomes and thereby reducing incentives for at-risk people to migrate. We note that this impact of rural industrialization may only be evident in the medium to longer term.
