HIV/AIDS and Mass Media Communication

International Organisation for Migration (IOM) organised the fifth of a series of training courses on HIV/AIDS Mass Media Communication under the project HIV/AIDS National Capacity Building and Awareness Raising Activities in Bosnia and Herzegovina: Mobile Populations, in the Hotel Since, Neum. The training course was attended by the representatives of KULT who were present as part of the project Info-point for youth.

The training course included a number of aspects of mass media communication, ranging from approaching the issue of reporting on HIV/AIDS, especially in relation to mobile populations, to a final designed mutual communication plan (information campaigns) needed for the purpose of promoting large-scale Voluntary Confidential Counselling and Testing (VCCT) among mobile populations.

The experts at this training course were Paolo Saraca Vopini, an Italian journalist and a Spokesman for the Commission of the European Union, Stefano Volpicelli, an independent Senior Lecturer with extensive experience with the IOM in Rome, and Germano Calvi, a Psychologist and a Communication Expert from the international agency network for communication, NS&L Group.

The Project is financed by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria for BiH (GFATM), the funds in BiH are managed by the UNDP, and the Project is being implemented by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM).
