1 December, World AIDS Day

Each year, on 1 December the World AIDS Day is celebrated. All over the world, different events are held that aim to raise awareness and achieve a better understanding of patients living with HIV. 

On 1 December, peer educators adequately commemorated this day as a part of the activities of Youth Strategy and in collaboration with Partnership in Health and the YPEER Network. In two high schools in IlidĹľa educational lessons were held on HIV, manners of infection, transmitting the virus and discrimination of patients living with HIV. In addition, in a part of this municipality two boots for education and information were set up, in which youth were provided with useful brochures and contraception. 

Abstinence is the best manner to protect oneself from HIV, other sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancy. If the partners have intercourse, the only manner to adequately protect themselves is to use contraception. The most available means of contraception are condoms. The primary measure of preventing AIDS is sexual education, which is of particular significance to youth entering the world of sex. All those in doubt of being in contact with the dangerous virus should be tested as soon as possible, because timely treatment prevents the spread of infection to others.
