THE HEALTH FIRST OF ALL
Caring for women’s health, we promote safe practices to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections, especially HIV, and unwanted pregnancies.
Since August 2008 our organization provides cultural mediation service to the Gruppo Abele’s mobile unit for commercial sex workers.
Our cultural mediators from Albania, Nigeria and Romania work alongside with the Gruppo Abele’s outreach workers, to help sex workers avoid contracting diseases and sexually transmitted infections such as HIV and syphilis.
Among our health education initiatives, we produced one audiovisual addressed to commercial sex workers.
You must use condom always!
In 2005 we produced this audiovisual for health risk reduction (information and counseling aimed at the prevention of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases) among street sex workers and their customers. The project was co-funded by the Piedmont Region (2005), the Province of Turin in the framework of the Call for actions and initiatives on immigration policies (2003), the Local Health Unit 3 of Turin (2004) and Anlaids Piemonte (2004), and was developed in partnership with the Local Health Unit 3 of Turin and the association PIAM Onlus of Asti.

After producing this first video, we produced a less targeted video.
An audiovisual addressing Nigerian women with useful information on health, contraception, pregnancy and abortions.
The project was co-funded by the Province of Turin in the framework of the Call for actions and initiatives on immigration policies (2006), the Local Health Unit 3 of Turin and The Sompan Foundation (UK), and was carried out in partnership with the Local Health Units 3 and 4 of Turin. The video received a special mention at the IV National Contest “Marketing for Health” (2007).
