1. General information about HIV;
2. Mechanism and ways of virus transmission;
3. The first signs of the disease;
4. How to prevent the virus from entering?;
5. What to do and where to go if you suspect HIV symptoms?;
6. Actions of a medical worker in the event of an accident during medical manipulations.

• In the second part of the event, students received answers to questions on the topic, and also had the opportunity to check the knowledge gained during the event by passing tests in Google form.

All those who answered all the questions correctly received certificates from the Student Self-Government of KhNMU. All those present repeated and learned a lot of new and interesting information about the human immunodeficiency virus.
