The Serbian Association for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRH Serbia/SRHS) was founded in 2002. It aims to improve the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) status of young people through advocacy and the practical delivery of services.
The organization also focuses on vulnerable and hard-to-reach groups (with particular reference to Roma) via a 'Health Mediators' project which is being rolled out in Belgrade, Nis and Bujanovac.
The majority of HIV infections are sexually transmitted or associated with pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding, all of which are fundamental elements of sexual and reproductive health care. Despite this, services for sexual and reproductive health and for HIV and AIDS still largely exist as separate, vertical programmes. This case study highlights how Serbia has pioneered integration of these services.
