Project idea (in English)
At the moment, vulnerable groups of population – at-risk youths taking psychoactive drugs (the number of which grew 2,3 times since 1999) and male and female sex workers (the amount of which is estimated at 21,000 people in Belarus) have limited access to HIV and STDs testing and counsel services, psychological aid and legal advice. The project, therefore, is intended to broaden the access of the above-mentioned groups to these services as a means to raise their awareness on existing risks and prevention methods, as well as to prevent further distribution of HIV and STDs among general population. The project will have three main components: 1) building capacities and professional skills improvement of specialists working with at-risk youths and sex workers; 2) elaborating a methodological toolkit for the above-mentioned specialists on testing/counsel services; 3) enhancing intersectoral and interdepartmental cooperation between state institutions and NGOs to broaden the access to testing/counsel services.Back to partners list
