The aim of this study was to document the key HIV, TB and HIV/TB co-infection mobility related vulnerabilities of migrants in Malta through the conduction of a rapid mapping assessment of vulnerabilities and hotspots. It also aims to give an insight in the health care utilisation of migrants in Malta, the differences with Maltese nationals and the factors that can explain these differences. The study also aims to depict how the migrants themselves report on their utilisation of HIV/TB-related healthcare services, the quality and accessibility of HIV/TB-related care, treatment and preventive services they receive and how their perspectives compare with those of healthcare providers. The findings will be added to those from other five countries to generate evidence base for policy dialogue on reducing inequities and vulnerabilities to HIV and related TB coinfections amongst migrants in the EU.
