Due to the increase in patients with HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus), Syphilis and Hepatitis B, the Huamanga Health Network, through health teams, has carried out disposal activities in Huamanga at the facilities of the Faculty of Social Sciences of the National University of San Cristobal.
The event was attended by Alexa Romaní Cuellar, promoter of the Huamanga Health Network, who reported on the importance of such preventive diagnostics for good health.
LGBT people are more likely to transmit STDs, he said. That is why since March it has been carrying out preventive activities together with the Huamanga Health Network.
At the start of the campaign, they are placed in the Faculty of Social Sciences, covering careers in communication sciences, anthropology, archaeology and social work. However, after coordinating with Unsch, they hope to roll out these activities to all departments of the university soon.
