Why Migrants?

Why does this study focus on migrants?

Within Europe a large proportion of people living with HIV are migrants, that is, people living outside their country of birth. Migration itself is not a risk factor for HIV, but migrants are generally more vulnerable to sexually transmitted infections and its consequences.

There are some things that increase the risk for HIV for certain migrant groups. Sometimes it is because they come from a country where the proportion of people living with HIV is very high, sometimes access to services is not easy, and sometimes risks relate to certain behaviours or attitudes.

To find out more about the barriers to accessing healthcare faced by migrants in Europe we are carrying out the aMASE Study
