Youths train to fight HIV

As part of its on-going battle against HIV and AIDS, Youth Against AIDS will train 50 youths over eight weeks to disseminate information to other youths in the district.

“The youths will be trained as Peer Educators and are expected to spread the AIDS message by staging poems and dramas,” said training coordinator Thomas Damba.

One of the participants Sharon Godo said: “Peer education is the answer to the AIDS problems in youths. We are therefore going to train other youths in the district so that we can fight AIDS together as youths because we are the leaders of tomorrow.”
