The four-day training is intended for advocates and treatment activists from the black and minority ethnic (BME) migrant communities in Europe who are keen to make a difference by contributing to a stronger involvement of migrant communities in research, access programs, and early testing initiatives; as well as to fight HIV, HCV, TB related stigma and discrimination towards and within the community, which will lead to an enhanced quality of life for migrants living in Europe.

The Training will cover the following topics:

  • Prevalence, Pathology and Transmission Routes of HIV, HCV and TB among BME migrant communities in Europe
  • Treatment of HIV, HCV and TB and approaches to overcome existing barriers to treatment and care for BME migrant communities in Europe
  • Diagnostics of HIV, HCV and TB and approaches to overcome existing barriers to testing for BME migrant communities in Europe
  • Clinical Research and participation of migrant communities in Clinical Trials
  • Patient’s Rights and Doctor-Patient relationship
  • Addressing Stigma and Discrimination towards and within the migrant community
  • Mapping of key stakeholders and developing advocacy strategies to engage with them

The Trainers have to be experts in the topics above and have to have an enhanced understanding on the specific key issues and challenges that migrant communities in Europe are facing. The remuneration for trainers is 175 EUR per day of training and 105 EUR for the preparation of presentations.
