QuestHIVTest: HIV Testing Among Adolescents

In March 2017, E.V.A. launched the QuestHIVTest project in Saint Petersburg. This project is part of the EECA HIV Testing Campaign for Adolescents QuestHIVTest, which is being implemented by Teenergizer, the Eurasian Union of Adolescents and Youth, with support from UNAIDS.

The idea of the project is the regular monitoring of testing sites by teen volunteers and the creation of a simple and accessible interactive map, on which they will mark the sites where teens will be guaranteed to be provided with quality, friendly services.

Key objectives of the project

Location:
Saint Petersburg.
