AIDES is committed to respecting the cultural and sexual identity of each individual, their way of life, their ideological beliefs and their therapeutic choices. AIDES is independent of any religious, moral, political or scientific beliefs; it is a place of reflection, non-judgment, confidentiality and anonymity."
