Mission

Phoenix PLUS Autonomous Non-Profit Organization has worked in the field of HIV prevention for 14 years. We are committed to ensuring quick response to new challenges of HIV epidemic and implementing the best practices in the world. We use best practices not only to have the work done but also to help non-governmental organizations and public healthcare facilities start using innovations in their daily routine. We were the first organization in Russia to use and promote the cost-efficient HIV self-testing strategy that resulted in other NGOs using our strategy and the Healthcare Ministry including it in their recommendations on working with key populations. The Chairman of Phoenix PLUS is an active participant of the Coordination Committee for HIV/AIDS Prevention in the Russian Federation.

In 2019, we completed research on estimating the demand for PrEP in Russia and conducted an info campaign among gay community on the use of PrEP based on the research. At the moment, we are having negotiations with the stakeholders in order to make PrEP accessible for gay community in Russia.

Our info campaigns on HIV issues among gay community has a huge coverage of the Russian-speaking audience, as well as the parniplus.com web portal that makes Phoenix PLUS services easily accessible for the target audience. In 2019, more than 4 million people visited this web portal.

All the lessons we learn through our program and project activities are used in preparing manuals and supporting materials for healthcare professionals working with MSM. For example, our guideline published as a brochure titled An MSM Is Visiting A Doctor and distributed in AIDS-centers helps healthcare workers to be non-discriminative, more MSM-friendly, and the AIDS-centers to become more accessible. Also, we publish info resources for clients and NGO staff on a regular basis.

The main principle of our work is to ensure that our projects and our experience can be easily scaled, sustained and replicated by communities and public healthcare facilities even after the project is completed.
