Conference “With Migrants for Migrants: Improving HIV Prevention for All”

Kindly hosted by the GUE group

With the participation of former MEP Vittorio Agnoletto

Marking World AIDS Day (December 1st), the event will remind participants that HIV/AIDS remains a fundamental health problem in Europe, also affecting migrant populations, and it will mobilize a wide array of stakeholders, practitioners and policy makers around HIV and migration at EU and national level.

The conference will also serve as a networking and dissemination event of the AIDS & Mobility (A&M) 2007-2010 project, co-funded by the European Commission. The A&M project, active in various European countries, builds on the AIDS & Mobility Europe network founded in 1993 and focuses on innovative approaches to HIV prevention among migrant communities.

The event will highlight the A&M project achievements and tools including its successful peer communication model and its Guidebook on HIV/AIDS for Migrants in Europe. The A&M model, disseminating culturally-sensitive information related to HIV among migrant communities, is expected to be replicated in other countries and policy areas.

A set of recommendations emerging from the project practice for improvement of HIV policies and programmes in Europe will be presented at the event for discussion during its multi-stakeholder working session. The key message conveyed will be migrants’ empowerment and inclusion in societies.

The A&M project is coordinated by the Ethno-Medical Centre (EMZ, Hannover) and partnered by IOM, the European AIDS Treatment Group (EATG) and the Italian National Institute for Health, Migration and Poverty (NIHMP, Rome) among other.
