The Cool andSafe project is a community sexual health project of the AIDS Prevention Platform (PPS), aimed at promoting sexual health and preventing HIV/STIs among migrants, Afro-descendants and Latin-Caribbeans. This project was born from the merger of the PPS and the Sidaids Migrants service, which had expertise in terms of prevention with this population.
