(SCORA CIMSA Unand on Spreading Awareness and Prevention HIV/AIDS)
SCORA CIMSA-BEM KM FK UNAND
Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) are transmitted through sexual means, including vaginal, anal, and oral. According to 2019's Indonesia's Health Profile, new cases of HIV in Indonesia in the year 2019 totaled 50.282 and about 7.036 for AIDS. Comparing to 2018's data, there is a noticeable increase from 46.372 infected that year.
Based on these data, SCORA CIMSA-BEM KM FK Unand designed an activity known as ADELAIDS (SCORA CIMSA Unand on Spreading Awareness and Prevention HIV/AIDS). On November 28th-29th, 2020, SCORA CIMSA-BEM KM FK Unand had done the 1st Intervention of ADELAIDS on Zoom Cloud Meetings. In the 1st Intervention, we had done the training. The training was delivered by dr. H. Armen Ahmad, Sp.PD - KPTI, FINASIM about Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and HIV/AIDS & Stigma around People Living with HIV/AIDS by Edwardo, S.Hum from Padang AIDS Commission (KPA).
On December 5th, 2020, we had done the 2nd Intervention of ADELAIDS. In the 2nd Intervention, we shared the knowledge to CIMSA-BEM KM FK Unand members by Qanita Adila (SCORA batch 2019). This intervention also includes a sharing session by Cahyadi Hermawan, an ODHIV (People Living with HIV), and a representative from Inti Muda Indonesia, which then was closed by giving Letters to ODHIV.
On December 6th, 2020, an open webinar was done to celebrate World AIDS Day 2020 with the theme 'Spreading Awareness and Prevention HIV/AIDS'. The webinar was hosted by many speakers and brought up various topics surrounding HIV/AIDS which include, but not limited to, 'Impact of COVID-19 on People with HIV' by Ary Bumi Kartini from Jaringan Indonesia Positif, 'HIV/AIDS and Stigma of People Living with HIV/AIDS' by Bayu Ghazali of Yayasan AIDS Indonesia and also a sharing session by Cahyadi Hermawan W.N, an ODHV (People Living with HIV) and also a representative of Inti Muda Indonesia. This webinar was moderated by dr. Anggita T.P. , an Alumni of CIMSA BEM-KM FK Unand 2011.
ADELAIDS was closed by doing an Air Campaign on IGTV and Youtube CIMSA Unand. A short video about 'Untold Stories of People Living with HIV/AIDS' by Hages Budiman from Kuldesak.
We hoped that ADELAIDS could increase the knowledge and awareness, of members of the SCORA CIMSA BEM-KM FK Unand, members of CIMSA-BEM KM FK Unand, and the general populace of the HIV/AIDS and other STIs, and also to lessen the stigma and discrimination towards people living with HIV/AIDS that is still happening today.
