We wanted to tell you that our itinerant prevention and sensitization exhibition, financed with the resources raised in GlobalGiving, continues to have a positive impact in the city of Medellín.
The exhibition is now in the Alfonso Mora Naranjo public school. The school is located in the Campo Valdés neighborhood of the city of Medellín and hosts hundreds of students. Primary and secondary education levels are offered in the state-financed institution.
In addition to that, and as a fundamental part of our mission striving for an informed and responsible sexual life, we commissioned a graphic designer with the task of conceptualizing a brochure regarding the education of the HIV infection. In the brochure, people will be able to find:
Answers to common questions regarding the infection
A section highlighting the importance of prevention
Some key facts about our foundation
An introduction to sexual rights and duties
The brochure explores the differences between HIV and AIDS, the ways in which the infection can be transmitted, how the infection is diagnosed and treated and discusses some myths revolving HIV. The ulterior goal of this campaign is centered at raising awareness of the infection while making an emphasis on the importance of prevention.
The educational brochure is available for download in our GlobalGiving portal: please help us expand its reach by sharing it! It is initially available in Spanish but we expect to have an English version soon.
