We collected the ever-increasing resources on the different project topics and highlighted them in an interactive way. The most interesting feature of the website is the Interactive Map which constitutes a great advocacy tool. Interactive Map - Advocay Tool The new advocacy tool - Interactive Map allows the user of the website to receive information about legislation and policies on HIV and the situation in the countries of Europe and Central Asia in a way, that is comprehensive and self-explaining. What is more, the comparative form of information presentation opens new opportunities for regional advocacy. The instructions: In order to use the map, go to the Topics section of the website, chose one of the topics, and scroll down. On the right side of the page, you will see the maps available on this particular topic, you can change in between them. You can click on the country from the map and the country information  together with the direct link to the country profile will appear. New maps and new information are continuously being added! Country Profiles The website also allows to navigate through the country list and receive more specific information about a particular country that participated in at least one of the EHLF projects. On the country profile you can access country statistics and information, as well as see the projects in which the particular country participated, and further navigate to the project page.
