Action priorities and methods


Understanding grows lately that effective HIV prevention is no stand-alone measure, but should be part of a total concept. It can only work effectively when low-threshold diagnostic and treatment is available and human rights are respected, particularly those of ethnic minorities, socially marginalized groups, SWs, IDUs and MSM. This founds the basis of our method: "Highly active" HIV prevention is not an individual measure, but an interaction of public health policy and community in many different areas.








The actions span from capacity building, transfer of experience and assessment procedures, continuous medical education and specific HIV/STI prevention programs to improvement of STI diagnostic, sentinel surveillance and individual research projects.
