We are most grateful for all the efforts put in by each of you to keep this project moving regardless of the economic recessions witnessed in most parts of the world lately.
Our focus this period was to educate and commemorate the World AIDS DAY (WAD) Celebration. We were able to make more strides in the sensitization and education of 17,633 Cameroonian youths against HIV plus related issues in 45 communities and HIV screening in two communities which are some of the most effective ways to curb the spread of HIV and AIDS among youths which culminated with the celebration of the WAD

Cameroon Baptist Convention Health Services-Youth Network for Health (CBCHS-YONEFOH) Activity Report (February 2013 to April 2013)
Thanks to your donation to us through GlobalGiving, YONEFOH field staff have been able to reach an increasing number of youth in remote underserved communities with primary HIV prevention education. We were able to carry out/strengthen the following areas of our community work using the dollars you generously donated to us:
Education and sensitization
By the end of January, 2013 YONEFOH activity report showed that in total 6,101 number of youth were reached with HIV and STI education. Since then, more efforts have been made to reach more, especially in remote areas. The 8,820 students reached this quarter, brings the total number of youth reached with global giving donation stands at 14,921. New health topics were also emphasized. These include smoking, drug abuse, alcohol, dating, relationships, rape, values self-esteem and abstinence. Despite progress made in this area, more work is still needed to meet the set target of 50,000 youth by the end of 2013.
The spread of HIV among youth in Cameroon is still critical. That is why since inception, CBCHS’ Youth Network For Health (YONEFOH) program is making consistent strides to restrain the spread of HIV among youths ages (15-25 years). The program’s goal for this year is to adequately empower at least 50,000 youth for behavior change via continuous sensitization and provide access to Voluntary Counseling &Testing (VCT) to them through a school/club- based approach.
During the September 2012 challenge, the program raised 1,060 USD on GlobalGiving and used the funds to carry out general health education and Voluntary Counseling and Testing (VCT) in two schools in underserved rural communities (Government High School (GHS), Mbu-Warr and Government Bilingual High School (GBHS), Bamali). A total of 146 boys and 109 girls opted for HIV testing in GBHS Mbu-Warr while 107 boys and 249 girls also went in for HIV testing in GBHS Bamali. Thus, some 608 youth were able to access HIV testing of whom one tested positive. While the ‘negatives’ pledged to adopt behavior change measures to stay negative, the one that tested positive was immediately linked to the nearest care and treatment center in Bamali for follow up and treatment.
We will keep you updated as we take our next trips in other communities. We would like to know what you think about our work and as our partners; your suggestions are most welcomed.
