The changing face of the HIV epidemic in Western Europe: what are the implications for public health policies?
A.M. Downs, F.F. Hamers
This review describes changes in dynamics of HIV transmission and shifts in affected populations in Western Europe. Migrants from countries with a high prevalence of HIV/AIDS, notably sub-Saharan Africa, bear a disproportionate and increasing share of HIV throughout western Europe. Following a resurgence of risky sexual behaviour, HIV transmission may now be increasing among homosexual and bisexual men. Renewed safer sex campaigns are urgently needed.
