Project description
The Union completed the "Family with a Plus" thematic project to the purpose of preventing the stigmatisation and social exclusion of persons living with HIV. A study visit to Norway was organised jointly with the Psychology of Health Center, an organisation active in a similar field; Partner organisation representatives were invited to Poland to exchange experience concerning respective solutions applied by both countries. A series of meetings allowed participants to earn more about solutions applied, and to exchange experiences concerning HIV/AIDS prevention, social support, and counselling for HIV/AIDS patients. Participants were also told how the KirkenBymisjon-operated AKSEPT centre for persons living with HIV works. Partner organisation representatives joined Foundation representatives i.a. for visits to the National Centre for AIDS and to a hospital treating children with HIV. They also participated in the "People Living with HIV - in the Family and the Society" conference held in Warsaw. Furthermore, study visits yielded a thematic project application filed for the third edition of the competition jointly with the Psychology of Health Center and the Norwegian organisation PION (funding was approved for the project).
