In order to prevent the emergence and spread of socially dangerous infections among the military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, such as tuberculosis, HIV infection, viral hepatitis B, C and sexually transmitted diseases, educational activities are constantly being conducted among personnel.
Recently, specialists from the 28th Regional Sanitary and Epidemiological Department have received and disseminated educational materials and personal protective equipment (condoms). In addition, within the framework of the event, explanations were made on and how to use QR-codes to receive methodological materials about prevention and spread of infectious diseases among the personnel of the region of responsibility. Methodological literature was created and obtained through the cooperation of the International HIV / AIDS and Tuberculosis Institute, the Preventive Medicine Service of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine and the Center for Public Health of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine.
It is important to note that the problem of public health equals the problem of the existence of the nation. Worldwide, diseases such as tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS remain one of the most serious medical and social problems. At the beginning of the 21st century, experts from the World Health Organization are compelled to admit that these diseases are a threat not only for individual countries, but for all humanity. In recent years, Ukraine has seen a sad tendency to increase the number of patients with tuberculosis, HIV / AIDS. For preventing illnesses is important to refute myths and provide reliable scientific information. It can help to detect infections and illnesses at an early stage and increase the life expectancy of the population. The spread of knowledge about tuberculosis, HIV / AIDS will allow solving such an important social problem as tolerance of society in relation to patients.
