One hundred people participate in the Training days on HIV/AIDS
Fuerteventura's Cabildo with its Council of Social Policies, the Sexual Information Point and the collaboration of the Altihay Fuerteventura association recently celebrated the Training days on HIV/AIDS in the old Popular University building under the slogan “The 3 “A” with HIV/AIDS: getting updated (Actualizándonos), Supporting each other (Apoyándonos) and getting closer to one another (Acercándonos) with HIV/AIDS. Those days that included one hundred people provided information on HIV/AIDS to anyone who was interested, both in the general population and with professionals in the social, health and education sectors. The island councillor, Víctor Alonso, confirmed that such days would take place again this year on various subjects of interest related to this subject. Various presentations took place during the day including one emotional part regarding patients, families and people involved indirectly, putting emphasis on information, prevention and awareness. Víctor Alonso indicated that “we must carry out prevention initiatives not only concerning the social fabric but also in schools, administrations and in the Health Services of the Canaries, amongst others”.
