Determinants of HIV in Key Hotspots on the Southern Transport Corridor: Maputo to Swaziland
This study aims to explore the key determinants of HIV along Mozambique's southern transport corridor, which runs between Mozambique and Swaziland. The locations through which the corridor runs have amongst the highest HIV prevalence of anywhere in the world. The research team worked in four areas that are considered to be hotspots - areas where mobile populations meet with resident populations and there are high levels of risky sexual behaviour. The areas included two border posts (Goba, Namaacha/Lomahasha), an industrial area in Swaziland (Matsapha) and an area on the road from Maputo to Swaziland that has become a major stopping-off point for travellers, truckers and people from Maputo (Boane).
