Target audience Policy makers in the sphere of combating HIV and AI; representatives of the scientific community; international, governmental organizations and NGOs working on HIV and AI prevention among children and young people at high risk of getting HIV and AI in Northwest Russia (St. Petersburg and Kaliningrad), Latvia, Poland, Finland, Germany and other participating countries of the NDPHS
Summary This action explicitly addressed the area of HIV prevention among youth at risk of getting HIV and AI in mapping best practices, disseminating them, and training professionals in Northwest Russia. Workshops, research, training and a publication were implemented in the Northern Dimension area, including the Northwestern Federal District of the Russian Federation. In carrying out these activities, the action supported the NDPHS in facilitating cooperation between the EU and other Northern Dimension partners.
Background HIV prevention programs implemented in the Northwestern Federal District of the Russian Federation and other participating countries of the NDPHS are mostly targeted to injecting drug users and female sex workers who are aged between 25 and 30 years and most of whom are HIV-infected. This project was unique and added value to ongoing initiatives because it focused on children and young people (mainly of 14 – 25 years old) who are on the one hand at high risk of getting HIV and associated infections and on the other hand still do not belong to injecting drug users or sex workers.
Objectives The overall objective was to support the Northern Dimension Partnership in Public Health and Social Well-being (NDPHS) in its cooperation with Russia in areas falling into the priorities of the NDPHS.
Specific objectives/indicators Specific objectives were to support the work of the NDPHS Expert Group on HIV/AIDS and Associated Infections in mapping best practices in HIV prevention among youth at high risk of HIV/AI in Northwest Russia and other countries in the Northern Dimension area, disseminating those best practices among the participating countries and training professionals in Northwest Russia to implement them.
Results 1) Needs of children and young people at high risk of getting HIV and AI in Northwest Russia and other countries of Northern Dimension countries were mapped out; 2) Best practices on HIV prevention among children and young at high risk of getting HIV and AI, which could be spread in the region, were identified; 3) Professionals working with children and young people at high risk of getting HIV and AI were trained in prevention of HIV and AI; 4) Best practices on HIV and AI prevention among children and young people at high risk of getting HIV and AI were piloted in Northwest Russia; 5) Guidelines for decision-makers and stakeholders working with children and young people at high risk of getting HIV and AI on the best practices of prevention in these groups were developed
