PaKoMi handbook (english)

Immigrants are not necessarily less healthy than Germans – in fact, sometimes the opposite is the case. Yet migrants are at an increased risk under certain circumstances and often do not have the same access to the health system, good information, counselling and health-care services as Germans do.

These circumstances also apply to HIV/AIDS. Yet it is important to take a closer look at this situation, for there are various migrant groups in Germany with situations that differ greatly from each other and that are affected by HIV/AIDS to varying degrees. The risks of becoming infected with HIV also differ greatly. This handbook is intended to help develop appropriate HIV prevention services for and with migrants.
