New mission since June 2014: The use of HIV prevention service by chosen population groups is improved. The project focuses on the following target populations: Workers Health promoting offers with an emphasis on HIV prevention by „Workingplace Programmes“ will reach workers directly on their place of work. An aim of the project is to improve the effectiveness of awareness programs. Mobile workers, especially in the sector of transport and agriculture, should stronger benefit from HIV prevention services. The mission is for these sectors to increase their own resources for HIV-Response and to improve the coordination for an effective HIV-prevention. Adolescents: The project supports the increased utilization of HIV-Services by young men and women. The aims are to develop adolescents self-responsibility for health, to settle regular HIV-Testings and to improve Health services for adolescents. HIV-Patients: The project supports Persons with HIV to involve them in prevention and treatment. By strengthening the representation of interests of HIV- patients, stigmatization and discrimination can be removed as the most relevant restraints in utilization of HIV services. Access barriers to a consequent medical treatment can be overcome.
