Prevention of Sexual Transmitted Infections

Association on realizing an increasing prevalence rate of HIV infections among the youths and married couples, the association initiated a move to empower the community to resist, survive and overcome this epidemic among the sexually active groups and caregivers. In addition, there have been a couple of reports of Hepatitis ‘B’ killing lives of people in the sub-county and the nation at large. The association has liaised with local authorities and health units in Loro Sub-county to fund raise and implement the activities of the project within duration of one year. The target groups are entire community members living in the area who traumatize as effect of HIV/AIDS killing their family bread winners, depressed from adhering to treatment requirement and others who isolate themselves caused by stigma and discrimination from the community. The association has laid strategies of reaching out the communities through intensive sensitization using local available resources and tools. This is to get rid of more new infections of these dangerous and deadly STIs like Hepatitis, HIV, Gonorrhea, syphilis among others. Strong linkages and coordination with health workers from the nearer health centres in sub-county shall be encouraged so that they conduct regular community outreaches in schools, markets, trading centres, churches and public gathering days.
