“Public Information and Need of Knowledge” NGO was founded and registered in Armenia in 2007. The abbreviation “PINK Armenia’’ is being used in order to differ us from similar organizations in the world.
Starting from the very first day of our functioning, PINK has been leading activities to increase public awareness about sexual and reproductive health and rights, sexually transmitted infections and HIV/AIDS. Shortly after the functioning, the scopes of activities of the organization were enlarged; human rights protection and gender issues have come to agenda.
In the sphere of human rights protection PINK Armenia promotes the ideas of equality and acceptance of vulnerable groups towards HIV and LGBT people. Eliminating any kind of discrimination and bringing acceptance and appreciation of diversity in our society has now become an undertaking assignment for the organization.
The activities of the NGO take place both in Yerevan and in regions of Armenia. At the “Information, Education, Communication” center (Yerevan) the visitors have the possibility to participate in trainings, discussions, movie screenings, receive free of charge and anonymous counseling regarding sexual health and human rights, use the library and other services provided by the organization.
