HIV/AIDS Education

(December 5th, 2011) Did you know Ukraine has one of the fastest growing HIV/AIDS epidemics in the world? To address this issue, We held an event in the Chervonoarmis’k community in partnership with Zhytomyr organization ACET to bring HIV/AIDS awareness and education to Chervonoarmis’k School.  Our session was a half-day event, targeted roughly 45 student teens. We gave the teens invaluable information on how to protect themselves as well as others around them from HIV/AIDS. We created red ribbons for all participants and gave the students activities to test their knowledge and practical skills to combat HIV/AIDS and the stigmas that are associated with it. HIV/AIDS is not a topic that is thoroughly discussed or given appropriate attention to, especially in smaller underrepresented towns and villages of the region.
