Conferência do GAT sobre Migrantes e Minorias Étnicas
7-8 de Junho de 2007
The right to HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support for migrants and ethnic minorities in Europe: The community perspective.
Migrants, both documented and undocumented, and ethnic minorities encounter serious problems in Europe 53 and Europe’s neighbouring countries since they are especially vulnerable to HIV infection. Many obstacles to adequate HIV prevention, treatment, care and support (PTCS) for these populations still exist.
The Portuguese EU Presidency (July-December 2007) will be held under the overall theme of migration. The Portuguese Presidency will organise a European Conference on Health and Migrations: “For an inclusive society” (July 5-6, 2007), as well as a meeting of the national AIDS coordinators from Europe 53 and its neighbouring countries on “HIV and Migrations” (October 12-13, 2007).
Special areas of concern for the community include vulnerable migrant populations such as trafficked women, sex workers, as well as ethnic minorities.
Bringing together the relevant stakeholders from the community, policy makers, public health authorities and institutions to ensure concrete commitments towards universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support for migrants and ethnic minorities in Europe 53 and neighbouring countries;
Get all actors to recognise the link between human rights and universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support;
Increased visibility and accountability for the EATG as a partner in Europe for policies on migrants’ health.
An international two-day day conference in Lisbon (National Institute for Tropical Diseases), to be held on June 7 and 8, 2007, for approximately 150 participants, including community networks, health authorities, EC policy makers and politicians.
The European conference will be followed by a national conference on local Portuguese migrants issues, organised by GAT.
