StART Club is a platform for informal meetings and communication of people living with HIV and their environment, with specialists and medical workers.
The goal of the StART Club is to create and support a consistently high level of adherence to ART and adaptation to life with HIV.
The format of the meetings is self-support groups with the participation of specialists: doctors, psychologists, managers. StART Club is intended for patients who are at risk of discontinuing treatment, as well as for PLHIV who are willing to share their life stories with HIV.
