This chapter reviews sociodemographic characteristics of Latino migrants in the United States, features of their mobile livelihoods related to vulnerability to infection by HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and their access to prevention and treatment services. Findings from studies of HIV/STD risk factors and infection among Latino migrants are summarized, emphasizing the need for appropriate prevention interventions. Two approaches for developing HIV/STD prevention interventions for Latino migrants are described: adapting evidence-based interventions, designed for nonmigrants, and developing interventions specifically for Latino migrants. The latter are illustrated by describing three interventions that the chapter co-authors helped to develop, deliver, and evaluate. Fernando Sañudo describes Tres Hombres Sin Fronteras for male Latino farmworkers in San Diego County, California; Kurt Organista describes a pilot intervention for male migrant Latino day laborers in Berkeley, California; and Scott Rhodes describes HoMBReS, an intervention for recent immigrant Latino males in central rural North Carolina.
