This document describes CARE Bangladesh’s four years of experience in working with truck drivers, their helpers, rickshaw pullers and dockworkers, gained through their DFID-funded HIV Programme.

Transport workers are considered to be potential ‘bridges' to the general population in the transfer of HIV and sexually transmitted infections because of their relationship to sex workers.

As well as covering the challenges faced by the project and the lessons learnt as a result of the intervention, the document outlines the three key intervention strategies of the project: partnership with labour unions, employing peer educators and outreach workers and setting up drop-in-centres.
