Abstract Lately Spain, the proportion of immigrants has increased in both general and HIV-infected populations. Nevertheles, data on the temporal trends of the epidemic in immigrants and on their sociodemographic, epidemiologic and clinical characteristics are scarce and are scattered in various information sources that cover complementary aspects of this issue. The objectives of the present study were to analyze the available information sources that allow the epidemiology of HIV infection in immigrants in Spain to be studied, and to describe the current situation of HIV infection in immigrants, based on the available information sources.
