Dear readers,
I am pleased to present to you this special issue – supplement of Problems of Infectious and Parasitic Diseases, issued by the National Center of Infectious and Parasitic Diseases, which includes five summaries of reports for the long work done by the program „Prevention and Control of HIV/AIDS“ at the Ministry of Health, funded by the Global Fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. Anyone interested could find the full text of the reports in Bulgarian language, which soon will be published. They reflect the efforts of hundreds of medical professionals, social workers, members of NGOs, municipal officials, ministries and many other public and business organizations united in their struggle for improved control and prevention of one of the most important diseases of the present time targeting key risk groups in this respect: prisoners, injecting drug users, young Roma men, female and male sex workers and men who have sex with men.The editor-in-chief prof. T. Kantardzhiev kindly gave us the opportunity to present the summaries of those reports in English which is of great importance as it will enable the results of the enormous volume and of great medical and social importance of work done within the program to become available to the wider international audience, that will undoubtedly contribute to the prestige of our country, which organizes and conducts the fight against HIV/AIDS according to the latest requirements.With a wish to continue the efforts of all governmental and non-governmental institutions in the fight against this serious and socially significant disease associated with great financial burden, I would like to express my most sincere gratitude to all Program participants for their persistent, longlasting labor, which allows to introduce ourselves worthy to the Bulgarian public based on the activities carried out and the results obtained under the Program.
