Exploring the potential of young volunteers in HIV / AIDS Education and Prevention in EU and SEE Countries

EU – SEE Multilateral EVS project in EU (Spain, UK, Estonia, Lithuania) and SEE countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro)

11 long-term volunteer placements from March 2007 to  December 2007

The general objective of this EU – SEE multilateral EVS project was to add an intercultural dimension to HIV/AIDS prevention, education and care work and to promote a more widespread responsibility of civil society in the fight against AIDS across all borders. The volunteers provided an added value to the local communities and gained valuable experiences in dealing with HIV/AIDS prevention in a new and diverse environment.
