The Post Test Club is a group that youths join after they've been tested for HIV. The club strives to keep youths HIV-negative and to ensure that those who are HIV-positive receive treatment and care.
The Post Test Club includes 25 youths between the ages of 15 and 30. They put on skits and plays, create music, and do formal presentations for the community. They educate others by using their personal experiences about living positively and about the importance of getting tested for HIV.
The club meets twice a week, first to prepare their plays or presentations and then to perform them for the community. Members are given a small allowance for food and transportation.
Spreading awareness about AIDS helps decrease the rate of infection and decreases stigma. HIV-negative members of the club often volunteer for AIDS vaccine trials. Also important is the message about how to live positively with AIDS.
