US: Immigrant Women Face Many Barriers to HIV Testing and Care

Immigrant women living with HIV often juggle multiple identities, all of which are the target of discrimination and stigma: HIV status, female gender, person of color, foreign accent and/or poor command of English. Many also come from countries with a high prevalence of HIV and/or have experienced trauma and abuse during their journey to the U.S. These disadvantages are compounded by policies that prevent immigrants' access to health insurance, fear of immigration enforcement, low socio-economic status and cultural belief systems that may be at odds with mainstream U.S. health care practices.

PrEP for African migrants in Europe? A research agenda

Clinical trials and demonstration projects in Europe have focused solely on men having sex with men (MSM). In contrast to global PrEP research, Europe seems to have overlooked heterosexuals at risk of HIV, mostly sub-Saharan African migrants and other ethnic minorities from endemic regions. Research should urgently investigate how to offer PrEP to all people in need: how to stimulate demand, how to deliver it, and how to support adherence.

The Lancet: Migrants screened for active tuberculosis pose negligible risk of spreading infection but can still get disease later

Tuberculosis incidence in the UK has declined over the past four years, with fewer numbers of new migrants diagnosed with the disease.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
