Migrancy, Masculinity, and Preventing HIV in Tajik Male Migrant Workers (ICPSR 35840)

Principal Investigator(s): Weine, Stevan M., University of Illinois at Chicago


This project collects a survey of Tajik married male migrants in Moscow (N=400), ethnographic interviews and observations of the Tajik migrants in Moscow (N=40), their wives/regular female partners in Tajikistan (N=40) and Moscow (N=~30), sex workers in Moscow (N=30), and service providers (N=40) in organizations that are involved with migrants in Tajikistan and Moscow. Data focus on the social, cultural, and psychological factors shaping masculinity; how masculine norms impact male migrants' HIV risk and preventive behaviors; and how HIV prevention skills can be enhanced among this population in the context of their lives and the organizations that work with them.
