    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The article discusses a research on the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Great Britain. As of June 2010, the prevalence rates of HIV in Great Britain are highest among African immigrants. Several factors that should be considered by healthcare providers when developing health promotion messages include the geographical trends and epidemic patterns. The two attitudes towards HIV infection that have been observed from the study population of Ethiopian and Eritrean immigrants are described. One of which is the tendency to underestimate the significance of the disease.
