COGAM's Prevention Group
Fighting against AIDS is a priority for COGAM. Either offering support and services, implementation of prevention projects or claiming the end of discrimination for HIV positive gay men. See below what can we do for your health and how can we help you.
Some of our goals:
Giving information on HIV, sexual transmission infections and safer sex between men and between women.
Facilitate access to condom and lubricant
Supporting to sorting out difficulties related to condom use
Supporting to sorting out difficulties related to relations with health professionals
Giving information on HIV testing and STI vaccinations
Fighting discrimination of HIV positive gay men inside and outside the gay scene.
We are interested in promoting healthier habits and behaviours, within a focus of wide sexual health, including biological, psychological, emotional and cultural aspects. The frame is a non-guilty understanding of sexuality and the promotion of a gay and lesbian identity, widely understood, on positive terms and open to difference.
You can read preventive information (in Spanish) in some of the publications you will find at our website (see "documentos").
