YOUTHS URGED TO TEST FOR HIV

Written by on December 2, 2021

Youth of Substance Forum (YSF) National Coordinator Rudolph Mwanza has urged the youth across the country to go for Voluntary Counseling and Testing (VCT) as the country commemorates World AIDS Day.

Mr. Mwanza says young people should avoid being too excited as the festive season approaches noting that many might engage in sexual behaviours that can put them at a high risk of contracting HIV/AIDS.

He adds that the youth should not forget the ABC motto which promotes abstaining from sexual activities, being faithful to one sexual partner and using a condom when engaging in sexual intercourse because AIDS is real.

Mr. Mwanza has further called for concerted efforts from all stakeholders if the country is to end the HIV/AIDS pandemic adding that there is need for heightened sensitization among young people.

Zambia joins the rest of the world in commemorating World AIDS Day under theme ‘End inequalities, End AIDS, End pandemics.’
