The Human Side of Mobility & HIV

Action Research
CARAM partners' key thrust is to develop coherent information through participatory action research with migrants and their communities at all stages of migration to strengthen their perspective. CARAM bridges the gap in interventions by linking health to development strategies within the HIV/AIDS discourse. Since action research is a dialectical and circular process, CARAM Asia is continuously challenged by new research questions, which demand uninterrupted information and action.

    · To develop a rights-based framework for CARAM’s research on mandatory testing.
    · To assist CARAM partners in identifying the most effective methodologies and tools to undertake their respective research projects.
    · To develop guidelines, country level research designs, indicators, work plans, timelines and expected outcomes and outputs for the regional research project.
