HIV/AIDS

 www.avert.org - averting HIV & AIDS worldwide

AVERT is an international HIV and AIDS charity based in the UK, with the aim of AVERTing HIV and AIDS worldwide.

AVERT has a number of overseas projects, helping with the problem of HIV/AIDS in countries where there is a particularly high rate of infection, such as South Africa, or where there is a rapidly increasing rate of infection such as in the Russian Federation.

And through our highly successful web site, www.avert.org, we take education and information to people in almost every country in the world.

But there is still no cure for HIV/AIDS, and many millions of people around the world are dying each year. More effective treatment is needed, and so AVERT continues with HIV/AIDS medical research to contribute to this.

Chat Danger

Chat Danger's website

Aim:
The Chatdanger website has been created to inform young people about the potential dangers and ways of keeping safe in interactive areas online, such as chatrooms, instant messenger, online games and email, and also via mobile phones. The aim of the site is very much to inform and empower users of these services, so they can use these services safely, and not at all to discourage people from using these services.

History:
Childnet International originally launched the Chatdanger website in October 2000. Earlier that year Childnet had been contacted by the family of a 13 year-old girl who had been sexually abused by an adult who had first made contact with her in an Internet chatroom. The family very bravely wanted to use their story to help alert other parents to the dangers of chatrooms, and to use their words,

"to ensure that some good comes from this tragic episode by raising awareness of the potential dangers of the Internet, particularly chatrooms".

Working with the family Childnet launched Chatdanger.com on the day the offender in this case was sentenced.

Impact:
Within the first four years of this site we have received over 4000 emails from children, young people and parents, expressing their concerns, asking for advice and sharing their stories. The emails we have received have been an incredibly useful source of information, where we are able to find out more about the real issues facing users of the technology. Some of these emails have been used directly (with the sender's permission) in policy debates and discussions surrounding child safety on the Internet.

Cruising for sex

Cruising for sex - sexual health for men who have lots of sexual partners

According to statistics compiled from gay Pride events by Sigma Research, 20% of gay men in London have sex with more than 30 different men every year. Half of those men have sex with as many as 100 different men in a year.

And 10% of them have sex with up to 200 or more. The statistics show that men who are HIV-positive are more likely than men who are HIV-negative to have lots of partners and that the HIV-negative men are more likely to put themselves at risk of being infected with HIV. Cruising for Sex gives gay men an outline of the new research and offers specially tailored advice on sexually transmitted infections and HIV.

It includes new advice on Hepatitis C and viral load, and repeats recent advice that there is a low but very real risk of HIV transmission through oral sex. The booklet is available free in the health information racks in most gay bars and clubs.
