HIV and refugees. Policy Brief

In order to reduce the risk of HIV infection and improve access to HIV-related prevention, treatment, care and support of refugees, UNAIDS in collaboration with one of its Cosponsors, UNHCR, has developed a new policy brief that focuses specifically on actions required to prevent HIV and mitigate the effect of HIV on refugees and their host communities.

The policy brief focuses on emergency and post-emergency phases and suggests actions for governments, civil society and international partners in order to ensure that refugee and human rights laws are applied, and that the needs of refugees are included into national HIV policies and programmes.
