The V Provincial Communication Event on Sexually Transmitted Infections (ITS) and HIV-AIDS will be held from tomorrow 27 to 30 September at the Kawama Hotel in Varadero.
Sponsored by MediCubaSuiza, Project of Training of Counselors to prevent HIV / AIDS, the main objective of the event is to update the situation of the disease and to show the communicative strategy of the World Health Organization to disseminate this pathology.
Experts from the HIV provincial center, along with journalists, program managers and radio and television advisors, will discuss the best experiences presented in the different media.
According to statements made by Pablo Omar Milián Valle, a specialist in the provincial STI / HIV / AIDS Prevention and Support Group in Matanzas, the meeting is of great importance due to the reach and power of the professionals of the word to raise public awareness about the need to adopt measures to prevent further contagion.
The head of communication also added that, together with the event, research is being carried out to find new prevention alternatives, especially among women, since the number of infected women has increased.
