07. 11. 2012

A Donation Protocol of DoD HIV/AIDS Prevention Program (DHAPP) aimed at AIDS prevention and control in the Serbian Armed Forces has been signed yesterday at Military Medical Academy. The event was followed by official takeover of donated equipment. The head of the MMA’s Sector for Logistics Colonel Dr. Gradimir Vukcevic and chief of US Defense Attaché Office in Belgrade Lieutenant Colonel Sean Long signed this protocol in the amount of one hundred thousand dollars. 
It includes the development of laboratory infrastructure for AIDS testing and disease diagnostics (fast tests, ELISA tests, tests CD4 and CD8) as well as the informative activities for raising awareness among the members of military population on HIV/AIDS prevention and the professional training of MMA’s physicians in this severe disease prevention and control.
The program of US Ministry of Defence for HIV prevention is realized through the cooperation of numerous military medical services around the world. The MMA’s physicians aided by US Defense Attaché Office collaborate with DHAPP since 2004.
Since the first case of HIV infection in our region, Military Medical Academy organizes the activities related to the HIV prevention and control among military population and actively participates in early diagnostics and treatment of infectious patients.
