CEPIA has visited various Rio de Janeiro Municipal Health Centers, alerting them about the necessity of using condoms during sexual relations.

This intervention is done while the women are waiting for consultation in the health units, as well as, in the municipal obstetric nursing wards through the showing of six videos produced by the institution. These videos have as a central theme Women and HIV/AIDS Prevention.

The videos are followed by a debate about the questions raised in the audiovisuals, with an emphasis on sexuality and gender relationships.

This project has the support of the Health Ministry. The realization of this project was done in partnership with the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro Social Service School. The students worked in the waiting room of the health units under the guidance of the professors Ludmila Cavalcanti and Luciana Zucco.

During one year of activity we have been able to reach approximately 5000 women, and with the renewal of the partnership with the Health Ministry we will be able to give continuity to this work that serves to motivate safe sex.
