Abstract

To date, measures to reach the resident migrant population through HIV/AIDS-prevention provisions in Germany and also in some other European Member States have been limited primarily to analogues or adaptations of approaches developed for the native population. In the personal communication sector regarding HIV-prevention, there have been a few selective culturally sensitive and target group specific approaches to reach the migrant population, which have not been coordinated, either nationally or internationally. The following approach which will be described below, is innovative insofar as HIV-prevention here is an integral element of social work with migrants as a whole and is also introduced into the training of social workers and social counsellors as a unit.
