Description: 

This report presents the findings and recommendations of a review of HIV-related data on migrant and ethnic minority populations in European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) and European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries.

The review was intended to:

  • Provide an overview of the current situation with respect to data on HIV in migrant and ethnic minority populations;
  • Identify gaps and methodological challenges; and
  • Propose ways in which data, and data comparability, might be improved in Europe.

Aimed at policymakers, programme managers, epidemiologists, researchers and others involved in migrant health, this report is intended to inform future policy, research and practice. Section 2 provides the background to the review, Section 3 documents the main findings, and Section 4 sets out the main conclusions and recommendations.
