Challenge

Based on the recent report from the Philippines Department of Health (2018), the number of newly diagnosed HIV positive is increasing every day in the Philippines. In 2008 it was roughly one new case diagnosed per day, whereas in 2017 the incidence rate has increased to 29 new HIV cases per day. Youth ages 15 to 34 years old are the most at risk of HIV infection. Through HIV awareness during sports and mobile theater, thousands of youth will be reached.

Solution

ADRA in partnership with Dasmarinas Social Hygiene Clinic will organize sports events, conduct brief sessions on HIV and AIDS before the sports competition starts. We will show short video clips, provide brochures or leaflets and will conduct stage plays which portrays real life situations among youth reenacted by local performers in 40 schools and reaching 45,000 Filipino youth. We will also encourage and promote the youth to get tested and access the existing services of Dasmarinas City.

Long-Term Impact

The project will reach 20,000 youth by educating them on how to prevent HIV and AIDS and achieve health and well-being.
