This talk will present an overview and some results of a longitudinal study carried out between 2006-2012 in southern Mozambique, a setting of massive male labor out-migration and high HIV prevalence. The study included three waves of survey with a sample of rural women married to migrants and non-migrants, as well as collection of qualitative, institutional, and community data. The presentation will examine the effects of labor migration on HIV risks, marital stability, fertility, and child outcomes, and will conclude with reflections on broader societal implications of changing migration regimes in the study site and similar sub-Saharan settings.
