Dominican Republic

Spreading Awareness for the Health of Our Community

By Yolanda Gonzalez Malave, Program Assistant & HR Coordinator

Guara Bi – Dominican Republic recently participated in an outreach event in collaboration with the National Council for AIDS Treatment (CONAVISIDA) that focused on education to the community regarding the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases and the prevention of drug abuse.

This event was aimed at the general population and emphasized condom use as the most effective method of preventing the spread of these diseases given the increased incidence of cases among young people.

The main objective of the day was to increase the public’s awareness of their responsibility for improving both their sexual health and that of the people with which they relate, in turn, reducing the impact of sexually transmitted diseases. We also provided attendees with informational materials regarding the prevention of the use of controlled substances.
