INDONESIA- Migrants and mobile workers a priority at regional AIDS conference

Thousands of HIV and AIDS activists, members of governments and representatives of international organizations have gathered in Bali, Indonesia at the 9th International Congress on AIDS in Asia and the Pacific (ICAAP). Migrants and mobile populations are a recurring theme among the high-level addresses and poster presentations, a clear sign that they are a priority in the region.

“It’s gratifying to see that migrants are high on the agenda,” states IOM’s HIV and Health Promotion Coordinator, Rosilyne Borland. “Migrants were mentioned by three of the opening keynote speakers. This is an important recognition that the health needs of migrants must be considered in order to improve their access to migrant-friendly health care, including HIV and AIDS services.”
