Summary

1 in 6 couples suffers infertility. 30% of it is mechanical infertility (a block of tubes in women and sperm pipe in men) caused by untreated STD's. Condoms are not only a birth control method – they also help prevent HIV-AIDS. In many cases youth are not aware of the HIV-AIDS problem and other STD’s that might spread if a condom is not used. This project's main goal is to increase awareness of HIV-AIDS prevention by lecturing in every class in Israel for 16 year-old

Challenge

The challenge is to reduce pupils suffering from HIV-AIDS or other STD's that leads to mechanical infertility (tubes in women or sperm pipe in men that are blocked). The sub goal is to reduce the number of infertile couples in Israel The lectures make the pupils understand the importance of the use of a condom and hopefully will change their attitude.

Solution

Lecturing to youth on how to use a condom is most important, since it's brings them to think about STD's including HIV-AIDS and learn how to prevent it. This is a practical lecture.

Long-Term Impact

Education is a slow process. Lectures to youth are investments for the future in order to have less HIV patients on one hand and less infertile couples on the other. We need to change behavior today in order to see results in the future.
