In 2021 the two pandemics — HIV and Covid — continued to co-exist but, because of the speed of the propagation of Covid, it was perceived by many migrants as a more tangible threat than HIV & AIDS. The fight against HIV & AIDS was practically pushed into the background and due to public health restrictions usual HIV community testing activities couldn’t be organised. Migrant Plus used every opportunity to raise the awareness on the sad reality of HIV infection being a real threat that needed to be averted.
There was a big emphasis on addressing misinformation on health, including vaccines. Migrant Plus provided information that was accurate, linguistically understandable, and presented in a format that was culturally acceptable.
