Migrants in Europe

Min Halsa

AAI received support from the European Integration Fund to implement the project 'My Health'. The project aims to contribute to proposals to improve the national system for work with HIV and related health issues and new arrivals. With particular focus on women and young people. As part of the project we are working to increase the representation and participation of migrants in the existing fora for exchange of experience and opinion work about the policy and decision covering HIV issues. The project takes advantage of the knowledge and experiences of migrants and organizations, but the ultimate target group is newly arrived third-country nationals. (More details in Swedish)

 

As the first phase of the project 'Min Halsa' produced a discussion paper, with the help of experts and stakeholders at a seminar focusing on new arrivals. Hivbarometern focuses on information about Sweden's national HIV response and based on official statistics, which are the basis for discussion on what works well and less well in existing national efforts for new arrivals. AAI hoped that Hivbarometern contributed to increased discussion and ideas as to how we can improve the work of the HIV and related health issues targeted to newcomers.

 

In the second phase AAI conducted a series of consultations with stakeholders to examine how migrant-led organizations, and organizations that work with newcomers perceive their opportunities for meaningful participation, influence and capacity of decision-making forum. Min Halsa was co-financed by the European Integration Fund.

HHpAKeep HIV on the Agenda!

AAI led a stakeholder meeting and report as part of the project “Håll Hiv på Agendan!” Actor meeting and Report "Stay HIV on the Agenda!" was held on November 24, 2011, and the report followed in 2012. The report summarizes the results of the discussions held and puts forward twelve proposals for a better hiv response, where overall requirements are: updating the national strategy, the involvement of stakeholders in decisions on strategies and maintain a high level of financing of HIV response in Sweden and internationally.

 

The initiative was a platform to create dialogue and foster collaboration between stakeholders in Sweden. The seminar’s aims were to provide concrete proposals for a more effective response to HIV in Sweden and internationally. AAI selected four current topics that were discussed in parallel workshops. The results of the discussions and proposed actions were compiled in a report that was communicated to decision makers and authorities, including the Foreign Ministry and the Ministry of Social Affairs. AAI collaborated closely with HIV-Sweden, MSF & RFSL on this project. (in Swedish)
