Working in Partnership with Wamba Community Health Volunters (CHVs) we were able to give the go ahead for the CHVs to start to provide HIV/AIDS awareness training in February 2019 after receiving funding. They are proving the training in 4 different communities with the support of the Chief of Wamba and medical staff at the local hospital.
This project provides training to increase awareness of HIV/AIDS amongst young people to strengthen their capacity to protect themselves and provide general health education and counselling. The training will also work towards breaking down the stigma attached to anyone living with HIV/AIDS amongst the communities who often dismiss them. People will often refuse the free drugs they can receive as to accept them is to acknowledge they have the disease.
