AIDS prevention and psychosocial AIDS counseling centers; application for funding

The Free State of Bavaria grants subsidies for the expenses of the psychosocial AIDS counseling centers and for measures and projects to prevent the immunodeficiency disease AIDS.



Through prevention, the population is to be informed about the dangers of the immunodeficiency disease AIDS, about ways of infection and about how to avoid infection with the HI virus. Special attention should be paid to high-risk groups, migrants and young people.

Appropriate information is to prevent stigmatization and exclusion of those affected
