Better adhesion to treatment

Growing old with HIV is now a reality. People who just a few years ago felt as though they had no real future, are now faced with age-related diseases.

Sexually transmitted diseases

The HUG Gynecology Division informs, screens, and treats women and girls who have sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

If detected in time, most STDs are cured. Untreated, they can have serious consequences, such as infertility, extrauterine pregnancies, and chronic pain, and they significantly increase the risk of HIV infection. In Switzerland, it is estimated that more than 50% of cases of chlamydia and gonorrhea affect women 15 to 24 years of age.
