The primary objective of the HIV/AIDS Epi Update publication is to provide up-to-date information on trends and developments in the epidemiology of HIV infection, AIDS and associated risk factors in Canada. Prior to 2007, the Epi Update was published annually. A new staggered approach has since been developed - each chapter will now be published as a stand-alone document that will be updated as new epidemiologic data become available. This chapter, Chapter 13: HIV/AIDS in Canada among people from countries where HIV is endemic, summarized findings from multiple sources to provide an update on the status of HIV and AIDS in Canada among people from countries where HIV is endemic. Specifically, it starts with a summary of the estimated prevalence and incidence of HIV among this population in Canada. In addition, this chapter also presents data from the most recently available routine HIV and AIDS national surveillance data and selected findings from recent research. This chapter concludes with a discussion of the strengths and limitations of existing research and provides a summary of the findings presented.
