contact, Chin said. AIDS has reached epidemic proportions in parts of the Asia-Pacific region including China and India, with an estimated 8.2 million people living with the disease as of the end of 2004.

"Language and cultural barriers, as well as discrimination, isolate many immigrants from the wider society," said Chin, whose parents immigrated from Korea in the late 1950s. "They therefore rely heavily on immigrant community institutions to obtain social, economic and other supports. In the case of HIV, this role is especially important because of the social stigma surrounding HIV and the potentially dire health consequences of not understanding how to prevent transmission of the virus."
