Short description:
The services of the AnisS association are related to STI/HIV/AIDS and Health Promotion. Created in 2003, they are now one of the key Algerian civil society actors in the battle against HIV/aids. AnisS implements interventions for the members of the population whom are most at risk to get HIV infected; including injecting drug users, inmates as well as people who are already HIV infected. This is done through trainings, raising awareness, legal services, community organizations, support groups and income activities. Advocacy and networking activities are conducted to fight any forms of stigma and discrimination and to improve the institutional, legal and legislative environment.
