HIV-infected immigrants are viewed as a threat to public health by some people, however Australian surveillance figures suggest more attention should be focused on protecting African-born Australian residents from HIV infection. The authors discuss Australian research with West African immigrant communities in Western Australia as an example of active community participation in HIV prevention research, which is a key principle of best practice models for HIV prevention in migrant populations.
