Migrant communities coming from high-prevalence countries represent a key population in the HIV epidemic. Recent studies have shown that transmission within migrant communities occurs within both host countries and the country of origin; with migrant communities often exhibiting higher sexual risk behaviour and more likely to choose HIV-positive partners. Within a broader context of sexual risk-taking and human rights, this multi-perspective session discusses the issues pertaining to migrants and their role in the HIV epidemic. Aimed at researchers, physicians, policymakers, programme managers and community advocates, this symposia session presents new research and data around migrants living with HIV.
