Sofia voted for a Municipal Program on HIV

On December 20th, Sofia Municipal Council voted a Program for Prevention and Control of HIV and STIs in Sofia Municipality 2019-2023.

This is the first HIV program adopted by Sofia Municipality. It aims to achieve a reduction with 50% of the new HIV infections in Sofia by 2023 through measures for prevention and improving testing coverage for the general population and key populations.

The program came as a result of the united efforts of municipality and NGO representatives, who worked together in the Sofia Local Public Committee on HIV, re-established in 2018.
