The first day of a series of HIV prevention training seminars for volunteers was held at the Belarusian State Medical University in the lead-up to the 2nd European Games 2019 in Belarus. Among the volunteers there were both medical students and representatives of other universities and specialities.
The volunteers learned about HIV and prevention measures, how to make a rapid HIV test and how to take it. There were a lot of questions and discussions.
The training sessions were led by the experts from the Joint UN Program on HIV/AIDS, the Ministry of Healthcare, and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador in Belarus Svetlana Borovskaya visited one of the seminars with a consultation for the students.
