Why concerned about HIV/AIDS
HIV/AIDS and drug abuse affects every walk of life, and has a profound influence on everything we do, in our closest relationships, at home, at school, and colleges not a single day goes by without a reference to the pandemic in the news papers Just as the virus infects the body and every cell in the body, so it affects every single person living on this earth. The virus has destroyed the innocent hope, desires and plans of countless numbers of young people whose lives has been cut short by an unseen enemy.
HIV/AIDS and teenage pregnancy has reached pandemic status in Ilinge particularly amongst the youth, escalating social problem leads to academic failure, absenteeism from school, bad household environment and poverty.
Educating (15) fifteen young people for (2) two weeks this will ensure that communities play an important role in the aftercare services. And reduce the rate of HIV/AIDS, teenage pregnancy and therefore a strong element of all programmes must be prevention awareness rising.
