To generate and validate an innovative European model of good practice for HIV prevention in MSM for use across Europe, and particularly in ‘gay venues’. This will be supported through the collaborative efforts of a European network of organisations consisting of public administrations, academic organisations, NGOs who are active in HIV issues or defending the rights of gay people, and organisations which bring together gay business owners. The model of good practice which will be developed within the Everywhere project aims to put culturally adapted HIV prevention information and materials in clients’ hands in those environments where anonymous sex between men is practiced. This will contribute to raising awareness within MSM of HIV prevention messages by joining forces with four different businesses sectors that are associated with HIV preventing homosexual tourism and entertainment in Europe.

Health problems of prisoners are widespread exacerbated by rising prison populations. Young prisoners have needs distinct from other prisoners, are more disadvantaged than their counterparts in the community and show negative impacts on their health. There is a clear need for prisons to respond with health promotion interventions to address health inequalities endorsing the principle that time spent in custody should aid disease prevention and promote health.

The project Health Promotion for Young Prisoners (HPYP) aims at developing and improving health promotion for young vulnerable people in the prison setting. It specifically aims at the subsequent implementation of a health promotion toolkit for young prisoners widely across European Member States. The toolkit addresses health related factors regarding infectious diseases, sexual health, mental health as well as the prevention and treatment of drug use.
