Moreover, these sessions also aimed at raising confidence among youth by including sessions to speak among their peers. Additionally, youth participated in role plays on assigned topics including stigma and HIV & AIDS, drug users, and transfers among married couples. In conclusion, a poster session helped participants express messages on HIV & AIDS through art and creativity. “I want to know deeply about HIV & AIDS and want to present this great issue through arts and colors,” shared a participant.
In June, a training of trainers (ToT) will be held for participants to gain skills that help spread awareness messages on HIV & AIDS. All in all these activities help to increase capacities and address prevailing stigma and discrimination about HIV & AIDS and people with HIV & AIDS.
