Description:
The second national seminar of the Irish AIDS and Mobility Network was held on November 25th, 1999, at Dr Steevens' Hospital. It was well attended with participants from all over the country. The issue of the support of mobile population groups is clearly very topical at the moment, with the current levels of asylum seekers overwhelming the availability of accommodation in Dublin so that migrants will have to be dispersed to other parts of the country. In her opening remarks, the Chairwoman explained the aim and objectives for the day and then outlined the agenda. The format for the day was to have presentations from service users followed by the breaking of the meeting into smaller working groups to identify the needs of mobile populations in the area of STD and HIV prevention and care. A plenary session would then be followed by a presentation by a representative from the Refugee Council on the legal situation for migrants in Ireland. After lunch, service providers would describe the services that are currently provided and identify some of the gaps in those services. Then the meeting would again break into working groups to discuss how the needs of migrants are being addressed in Ireland and how they could be better addressed. Another plenary session would be followed by concluding remarks and the Irish launch of the Athens Declaration on Access to New Treatments for Migrants, Ethnic Minorities and other Mobile Populations Living with HIV / AIDS in Europe.
