HIV and STDs

Legebitra association activities in the field of health are based on relevant documents and directives for programmes and projects for LBGT community (such as HIV Infection Prevention and Control Strategy for 2010-2015).

Basic activities in this field are represented by activities of HIV prevention aiming at HIV and STDs transmission prevention via sexual intercourse. This objective is realised through promotion of safer sexual behaviour including promotion of consistent and correct use of condom, informing and counselling related to possibilities of infection with HIV and STDs and diverse support activities intended for those who have questions about safer sex and those who live with HIV. Activities are primarily intended for MSM (men having sex with men) target group.
