Use of ethnography in the evaluation and targeting of HIV/AIDS education among latino farm workers.
Ethnography can be utilized to assess the impact of HIV/AIDS education simultaneous with the implementation of program activities.
An ethnographic analysis based on field methods adapted in a Michigan program that targets migrant farmworkers highlights responses to showings of a bilingual AIDS education video ; the things to which migrants attend while they are interacting with the educator and each other in HIV education presentations ; the tactics they employ to direct discussion when talking about HIV/AIDS, and the manner in which they use language to « distance » themselves from the topic of HIV infection and AIDS.
Migrants in Michigan experience the same risks to health as farmworkers in other states ; their pay is low, their hours are long, and the time they spend in the state is seasonal (summer).
They engage in risk behavior while in the state (primarily consensual/contracted sex).
Some migrants through use of drugs may come closer to exposure to the HIV virus outside the state than when they are working as migrants in Michigan.
