Walk in Ruhr


The project will aid WIR efforts by supporting one full-time medical health advisor for three years as well as a new interpreter service for one week for the duration of the initiative.

The key short-term aim of the project is to improve regional networking between clinicians, health workers and NGOs, improve patient follow-up in hard to reach populations and implement peer-to-peer counselling and education.

In the longer term, the project seeks to decrease the number of people with STIs in Bochum and increase the number of PLHIV being tested and introduced into care.
