Aside from the database, the „Study - Existing mechanisms and legal framework for CSO participation in the Health sector" was also promoted on this occasion. Haris Karabegović, project coordinator with Association Partnerships in Health, stated that the study covers 50 legal acts and subordinate regulations, strategies, policies and action plans on all levels of government.
„For the first time, we have all laws regarding cooperation of government institutions and nongovernmental organizations mapped in one document. This study will be the starting point for providing guidance on drafting mechanisms for cooperation of NGOs and government institutions, which our county truly needs", emphasized Mr. Karabegović.
Association Partnerships in Health also launched website www.hivtestiranjebih.com, as a contribution to prevention of spread of HIV in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The website contains information on centers for free, voluntary and confidential counseling and testing in B&H, information on the process of testing, counseling before and after testing, as well as basic facts about HIV and AIDS.

Treatment with the latest medications available in Bosnia and Herzegovina, if HIV virus is detected in time, enables people living with HIV to lead a normal and productive life", Mr. Karabegović stated.
