Overview

Academics and activists have come together in this edited volume to tackle the complex issues surrounding migration and AIDS. The book sets the agenda for the development of HIV/AIDS prevention and care programme in migrant and minority ethnic communities.
Issues covered include: migration patterns; policies for migrant health; legal and human rights issues as they affect mobile populations; racism and stigma; and HIV/AIDS prevention, care and programme evaluation as they pertain to migrant communities.
The editors end with an overview of some of the key issues which remain to be addressed. The book identifies foundations on which bridges can be built, attempting to turn away from thinking of migration in terms of 'them ' and 'us', of public health in terms of protection, and from conceptualizing AIDS in terms of the infected and the non-infected. It is hoped that readers will take up the challenge, turn towards groups too often ignored, and ultimately work towards social justice and equity.
