Abstract: A report from a study of the same name that took place between 2004 and 2006 which covered men and women from the Ethiopian, Kenyan, Somali, Guyanese, Jamaican and Trinidadian communities. The report analyzes the perceptions of HIV infection, the implications for infected individuals within those communities and the social and health care contexts within which HIV-positive people live and obtain treatment and support. It includes recommendations from participants for improved handling of the issues that affect them.
