Migrants at higher risk of HIV infections: research


International migrants in Australia face many challenges, and one of them is being at risk of HIV infection, according to a new research.

The Pre-exposure prophylaxis antiretroviral tablet (known as PrEP) reduces the risk of infection in a 99 per cent, and is easily accessible to Australian citizens.

But migrants don’t have this access, and along with the stigma of HIV and a lack of awareness, migrants are vulnerable.
