Since 2007, HIV and AIDS rates have gone up throughout rural Mexican states, partly as a result of returning Central American migrants who engaged in high-risk behaviors and were sexually abused and sexually exploited in the United States. Often returning migrants had not been able to receive diagnosis or treatment in the USA. Others had been tested by US Immigration controllers and deported without a treatment plan.
