The M-Care 2018 training programme is organized in collaboration by the Africa Advocacy Foundation (AAF) and the European AIDS Treatment Group (EATG). The goal of the training is to empower advocates and treatment activists from migrant communities in Europe to make a difference by fostering a stronger involvement of migrant communities in the provision of healthcare services, research, access programs, and early testing initiatives; as well as by fighting HIV, HCV, and TB related stigma and discrimination towards and within their community.

M-Care 2018 consists of three training modules organized throughout 2018:

Module Location Date

Module 1 Sitges, Spain 22-25 March2018

Module 2 Frankfurt, Germany 24-27 May 2018

Module 3 Warsaw, Poland 5-8 July 2018

Participants are expected to attend all training modules of the programme.

The training will cover the following topics:

  • Diagnostics and treatment of HIV, viral Hepatitis and other co-infections and migrant-specific barriers to service access

  • Clinical research and migrant community participation in clinical research

  • Psychosocial aspects of HIV, stigma and discrimination

  • HIV prevalence among migrant communities in Europe

  • Healthcare systems and legal environment for migrant healthcare access

  • Advocacy in the context of migrants’ access to healthcare services

  • Project management

The training organizers will cover the travel, accommodation and food expenses of the selected participants during the training modules.
