Welcome to the website of the project “We Choose a Life – Youth against HIV/AIDS''.

The project ‘’We Choose a Life – Youth against HIV/AIDS’’, that has been managed by Baltic Region Healthy Cities Association from March 2008 to March 2010, was a joint initiative of four Russian cities: Cherepovets, Dimitrovgrad, Izhevsk and Stavropol and international experts from the Netherlands, Finland and UK, to identify the most effective ways to curb the rapidly growing HIV/AIDS epidemic among young people in Russian partner cities. This was done by enhancing the capacity of local leaders and decision makers, promoting healthy lifestyle, raising public awareness on HIV/AIDS issues and increasing involvement of youth in planning of preventive actions through trainings provided by associated experts.

As results of this successful project, following materials were produced:
- Youth Monitoring tool,
- Handbook on Youth Involvement – Youth against HIV/AIDS,
- City Action Plans on curbing the HIV/AIDS epidemics,
- materials from campaigns against HIV/AIDS in each city.

On this website you will find all important information about the project activities and its results.

The project management team would like to express great gratitude to all project partners, experts and participants for an excellent cooperation and tangible results! Thank you!

The budget for the project was 296.180 euro.
It is funded by European Commission (IBPP-programme) and the partners.
