ESHOWE | MSF (2017-2018)
Teachers and other school personnels are on the fore-front of prevention of HIV and other sexually transmitted disease. Their role is key to inform students about how to prevent infections, know their status and get access to treatment.
A survey conducted in the Eshowe/Mbongolwane areas of KwaZulu-Natal in 2013 found that one in four adults aged 15 – 29 is HIV positive, with an even higher infection among women aged 15 – 39.
In Eshowe and other rural areas of KZN, @msf_southernafrica is partnering with schools to raise awareness about the importance of dialogue and information about STDs.
