      HIV prevention services for immigrant and migrant communities
    • Description:
      The first part of this report -- New York State's Immigrant Communities and HIV/AIDS -- reviews important epidemiological data regarding HIV seroprevalence among immigrants. Data regarding incidence of AIDS among immigrants in the US is provided. The second part -- HIV Prevention and Immigrant Communities: The Research Report -- is intended to teach educators and providers how to build successful relationships with immigrant and migrant communities and to sensitize them to a variety of legal and social factors that prevent migrants from seeking prevention services. It reviews theories of behavior change in an effort to place HIV prevention services for immigrants and migrants into a larger theoretical framework. This section describes and summarizes the extensive research project that was undertaken by the Latino Commission. The recommendations in this part of the report are based on the demographic information compiled, as well as literature reviews and the results of 17 focus groups that were conducted among seven populations of immigrants and migrants. '25 Things You Can Do to Make Your Program Immigrant-Friendly' outlines practical steps for providers to establish better communication with immigrants in their programs. It is written in a colloquial style for ease of disseminating to all levels of employees in a variety of health and social services agency settings. The chapter entitled 'Legal Realities Facing Immigrants" offers a basic overview of immigrant law and its social welfare implications. The third part of this report - five Appendices - include: Summaries of a sample of the cultural overviews of the different migrant and immigrant communities who participated in this project; information about the prevalence of AIDS in foreign countries; tools of the focus groups, including Protocols, and Participant's Questionnaire; a list of Laws affecting HIV+ immigrants; and a Glossary of Important Immigration Terms.
