Transplantation or rurality? Migration and HIV risk among Chinese men who have sex with men in the urban areas.
CONCLUSIONS: The widely used local/migrant categorization obscures important differences in HIV risk present between urban/rural subgroups among them. Previous studies of HIV risks in Chinese "migrant" may have failed to consider the role of structural factors such as discrimination or barriers to healthcare when interpreting their findings of higher HIV prevalence in this population. Low ART uptake among rural transplant MSM in this study is particularly concerning and underscore the need for HIV-related interventions tailored for this group. PMID: 29327442 [PubMed - in process]
