  2. 2. AS Center, the partner organizations of the civil society, institutions and activists with technical and logistical support o f GIZ SOSYEP project in Serbia have marked, starting Friday 22 and ending Friday 29 November 2013th The first Pan - European campaign called "HIV Testing Week - Talk about HIV, Get Tested for HIV'', which continued until 5 December as part of this year's celebration of 1 December, World AIDS Day. The week of HIV testing was intended to connect health centers, civil society organizations and policy makers across Europe to work together to raise awareness about HIV, to encourage people to talk openly about the usefulness of testing for HIV and to empower people at increased risk of HIV and to require the state institutions greater access to testing and treatment. The ultimate goal of the ''European HIV Testing Week'' was to raise awareness of the need to determine the HIV status in order to reduce the percentage of late detection of infection. The topic of the action "European HIV Testing week'' was testing and discussion of HIV infection, which is introduced in order to support dialogue between all partners in order to encourage vulnerable individuals and individuals to perform HIV test. European HIV Testing Week has multiple benefits for the community because in a creative way it: • encourages people who are at risk or may be at risk of HIV to be tested; • encourage health workers to offer HIV testing as part of routine care in certain circumstances and conditions (in accordance with current European guidelines); • supports and unites community organizations to increase HIV testing and exchange of lessons learned between countries; • motivates, empowers and raises awareness among politicians, individuals, social and economic stakeholders to support the initiative so that testing for HIV is developed into a routine practice in society. The week of testing is based on three main target groups to ensure that this action will achieve its goal: policy makers, health workers and civil society organizations. The evidence shows that the highest prevalence of HIV , among certain populations with increased risk for HIV, differ from country to country, but in general they include: • Young • Men who have sex with men • Intravenous drug addicts • sex workers • Migrante • prisoners On the official website of the European Initiative was also presented the Internet page of the European campaign "HIV Testing Week" in which each participant has the opportunity to make a registration or to be informed of activities and participants from other countries. For the needs of the action, "HIV Testing Week", Serbia has created a blog where the program and Facebook invitations and presentations were set up. During the presentation, we regularly updated the information and news, photos and video materials. Contribution to the action was the statement of the chief executive of AS Center, Djurica Stankov about the necessity of continuous treatment and quality of treatment of people with HIV, which was also delivered to Intelligence Agency Info Bureau.
