www.aidsbg.info is a web site providing HIV/AIDS information in Bulgarian. Its main goal is to present updated, diverse and accessible information on HIV/AIDS.
www.aidsbg.info was founded in 2002 in response to the lack of information on the HIV/AIDS-related issues in Bulgarian language. The web site is run by I Foundation.
I Foundation was established in 2004 as successor of Plus and Minus Foundation set up in 1999 to continue the activities of a self-help group of people living with HIV in the city of Varna created in 1997. The Foundation team consists of fellow thinkers, compassionate and committed to the problems of people living with HIV.
I Foundation works in defense of the human, civil and patient rights of people living with HIV. The priority among its objectives and fields of activities is the provision of universal access to state-of-the-art antiretroviral treatment in Bulgaria and related integrated medical care. The distribution of accessible information on the subject is inseparable from the attainment of this goal. To this effect the Foundation has been specialised in:
the publication of educational materials for patients covering a wide array of aspects of the disease and life with HIV;
the maintenance of a website presenting information in Bulgarian language on HIV/AIDS-related issues – www.aidsbg.info, focused mainly on HIV treatment and life with HIV.
Since 2005 I Foundation has been running a counselling office for people living with HIV in the city of Varna within the framework of the “Prevention and Control of HIV/AIDS” Programme of the Bulgarian Ministry of Health financed by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The counselling office is a protected space of sorts where people living with HIV, their relatives and partners can communicate freely. It grants services directed at assisting people living with HIV in overcoming difficulties of psychological, social, legal and medical nature.
