Afrikaherz aims to improve access to health services for African migrants and their relatives of all origins, with a focus on HIV/AIDS. Especially, migrants without residence status have very limited access to health care. In Germany, undocumented migrants from African countries are one of the most vulnerable groups. They often avoid legitimate or early medical treatment for fear of discovery and deportation. Especially if they have AIDS, they often fear that they will not receive their residence permit or that it will be revoked. Afrikaherz closes this gap by establishing contacts with people in need of protection in a confidential and friendly atmosphere and referring them to suitable health care services.
