This year, however, unlike the previous one, the winners in the individual categories received their awards in person, and the award ceremony itself was pre-filmed and edited in a video. The awards were provided with the support of Beauty Lab.

Borovets, August 20-21, 2021

BannerUnmonitored pregnancies lead to higher risk of complications and birth of premature babies. Every year about 6500 such babies are born in Bulgaria. The expenditures for prevention, including monitoring the pregnancies, are many times lower than the expenditures for the care and raising the premature children. The initiative ‘Every Baby is Priceless’ is for a change in the Bulgarian legislation to guarantee the providing of the best possible care for every pregnant woman.
‘Every Baby is Priceless’  is just one of the causes supported by the organizations-members of the National Network for Children (NNC).  The Annual Meeting and General Assembly of National Network for Children took place on August 20-21, 2021 in Borovets. The biggest civic organization working for children’s and families’ rights and wellbeing celebrated also its 15th anniversary.

End inequality. End AIDS

Bulgaria, December 1, 2021

For yet another year, the international community celebrates December 1 - World AIDS Day. This year it is entitled "End inequality. End AIDS"
On December 1, 2021, the WHO calls upon world leaders and citizens to unite against inequalities and reach out to people who do not currently receive basic HIV services. Forty years after the first cases were reported, HIV still threatens the world. Separation, inequality and disregard for human rights have allowed HIV to become and remain a global health crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbates inequalities and difficulties in health care delivery, a challenge for many people living with HIV.
According to the WHO, nearly 38 million people worldwide live with HIV/AIDS, with the number of newly infected people in 2020 being 1.5 million and the number of deaths being 680,000. Globally, in 2020, nearly 73% of those infected receive antiretroviral therapy. In Bulgaria, a total of 1,936 people with HIV are being followed up in the HIV / AIDS treatment sectors, and 1,910 (99%) of them are receiving antiretroviral therapy. In our country treatment is free for all people in need, regardless of their health insurance status. The therapy prolongs and improve quality of the of PLHIV and improves their quality of life. Bulgaria remains a country with low HIV prevalence - the frequency of newly registered cases of HIV infection per 100 thousand population for Bulgaria is 2.9 in 2020, and for comparison - the average for EU countries is 3.3.
