Sexties

On the eve of International Women’s Day, EHPV gave an open session in Narva, which refers to HIV prophylaxis. The event was organized by a young female team – Sexties, which do not remain indifferent to sexual education among local youth. During the session we discussed the history of HIV, ways of transmission, symptoms, treatment and also we touched the ways of prevention, and in particular new ones – PrEP and PEP.

To discuss future collaboration or just discuss the issues of HIV-infection, please send PM @ KulbaevSagib.

Those who are wishing to attend next Sexties’ events in Narva, please contact to Sexties.ee (Instagram)

World AIDS Day

This year Estonian Network of PLHIV celebrates World AIDS Day for the 14th time.
On that day, we remember everyone who died of AIDS and gather all those who need our support. Unfortunately, today we still cannot say that AIDS is defeated.

In his message to World AIDS Day, Winnie Byanyima, UNAIDS Executive Director and United Nations Under-Secretary-General, talks about the role of communities in their daily struggle:

I believe in communities.

Communities make change happen.

Communities are the best hope for ending AIDS because communities have fought against HIV right from the beginning!

HIV and Your Body – Going to full 360

During September 25-26, the EHPV team attended the conference: HIV and Your Body in Amsterdam. Doctors, nurses, NGO representatives, activists and many others shared their countries’ experience. There were 330 participants from near and far abroad.
Despite the economic and social differences between the countries, the experience of the participants showed that there are common problems. Participants noted that the efforts of physicians to solve all problems related to physical health are not enough. Besides everything, patients require social and legal support, which they are deprived of in most cases.

The problems of lonely elderly people were raised, and even in their relatively good physical condition; issues of migrants, and their legal and social aspects; problems of teenagers etc. Despite all good physical well-being, all these people were united by their incapacity of mental state, which in many cases led to sad consequences. Mental health of the patient was one of the main topics of discussion, and the represented practical experience showed us how work better with the patient.

The conference was held under the Going to full 360 logo and represented information and practical skills showed us that we are moving towards this goal and until we reach it, we will not stop !!

Join in the Global Men’s Health and Rights Survey

 

On September 4th 2019 was launched fourth global survey on the health and human rights of gay men, bisexual men and other men who have sex with men.
 
The 2019 Global Men’s Health and Rights Survey (GMHR 2019) focuses on factors that impact the health of gay and bisexual men around the world including discrimination, access to services, and the criminalization of homosexuality. The survey also addresses issues of mental health, freedom of gender identity and expression, and social connection and wellbeing which have all shown to be indicators of broader sexual health.
