Aids Map reports:

Nearly four out of every ten people with HIV in the European Economic Area (EEA) is a migrant to the country in which they are diagnosed, a recent report by the Spanish Centre for Epidemiology shows. The EEA comprises the countries of the EU plus Norway and Iceland.

Between 2007 and 2012, 60,446 out of 156,817 new cases of HIV (38%) were in people who were not native to the country where they were diagnosed. Nearly all HIV-positive migrants are concentrated in the richer countries of western Europe, with only 5% of diagnoses in central Europe and 1% in eastern Europe being migrants.

The UK remains the European country with the highest number of HIV diagnosed in migrants: 6358 people diagnosed in the UK in 2012 were known not to have been born there, though this represents a decline of 1000 since 2007. France comes next on the list with 4066 people in 2012, though their diagnoses have fallen even further since 2007, by 1600. In contrast, the next six countries on the list – Italy, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Greece and Poland – have all seen increases in the number of migrants diagnosed with HIV, with figures doubling in Italy and Greece, probably reflecting the new wave of trans-Mediterranean migration.

Those migrants sure are costly in the short and long run.
