Social, economic and health vulnerabilities of cross-border male migrants in South-Asia: Findings from Bangladesh, India and Nepal

Abstract

Although migration between Bangladesh, Nepal and India has been widely discussed, there is a lack of information on migrants’ social and health vulnerabilities on both sides of the border. The Population Council in India and Bangladesh, and CREHPA in Nepal, undertook a multi-country study, with support from the Department for International Development (DFID), to assess the social and cultural integration, lifestyle, prevailing physical, sexual, and mental health status (both self-reported and using select biological measurements), and the health-seeking behaviours of male migrants in India, and returnee male migrants in their country of origin (Bangladesh and Nepal).
