4.HIV/AIDS Awareness Program
HIV/AIDS Awareness Program, is aimed at the Tanzanian youth, to prevent the spread of this dreaded disease.The community awareness and stigma reduction activities will be carried out to reduce the incidence of HIV among key populations at higher risk of infection, including vulnerable women, truck drivers,uniformed services, internally displaced people,migrants, and at-risk youth. The objective is to increase knowledge and awareness of HIV/AIDS, train HIV/AIDS peer youth educators, provide Home-Based Care for families affected and to enhance lives through comprehensive voluntary confidential counseling. The care and support delivered through the program to the sufferers will also benefit the general public because a 'positive' lifestyle of the infected would help prevent the virus from further spreading.
