Research on risk behaviour of prison inmates in relation to HIV/SPI - BiH 2011

01 Jan 2012

Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country with a low incidence of HIV epidemic, but general circumstances in the country (poor socio-economic conditions, high unemployment, insufficient education of population especially on the topic of HIV and sexually transmitted diseases transmission, a rise in use of narcotics, rise in crime, prostitution, human trafficking, migrations, stigma, discrimination, lack of knowledge about hard-to-reach population exposed to an increased risk) all present a potential danger of spread of HIV in the coming period.


By introduction of second generation monitoring, activities on prevention and control of HIV/AIDS are directed to sub-population groups - whose risk behaviour can contribute to further spread of infection - a „bridge“ towards general population.
