Towards a Healthy Society
As in each modern society, human life and health are the basic values in Ukraine. Hand in hand with the Government, a number of organizations and institutions work on public health care and respond challenges to improve the quality of life for Ukrainian citizens.
As HIV epidemic is still growing in Ukraine, it might be one of the biggest challenges towards healthy society. Solving this involves a lot of international support to the country.
The most affected with HIV are young people who become infected through sharing syringes in drug use or having unprotected sex. But potentially every person is at risk.
Therefore, we have a special focus HIV issue when organizing the European Village event. We want to present the visitors how many important initiatives are being implemented in the Ukrainian society, and how many people are already engaged in so different ways to approach the subject.
While having fun at the European Village, we will talk of healthy life style and safer behavior. With games, sports, master-classes, dances and entertainments we will remind people how important it is to remember of safety and health at any moments of their life.
Let’s have fun together, be respectful and responsible.
Enjoy your health and do not forget: Don’t give AIDS a Chance!
