Communauté de pratique

We are fostering a Community of Practice to advance migrant health and to pool the knowledge of frontline organisations across the European region who are supporting migrants. We share knowledge with the goal of empowering individuals to have informed discussions on HIV research, treatment, policy and advances, and so that those who most need to be equipped with the information are able to understand it.

From migrants’ stories to blog posts, panel discussions to toolkits, news pieces to recommendations on healthcare policies, you will find the latest on HIV and migration from across the Mi-Health Europe community here.
