Namibia: New AIDS Project Targets the Young
November 12, 2002
Namibia has received over N$12 million (US $1.2 million) in funding from the Netherlands government and the United States Agency for International Development to implement "Window of Hope," an HIV/AIDS prevention program for 10- to 14-year-olds over the next three years. The new program will complement another program, which targets 15- to 18-year-olds, and focus on life skills training. "The program aims to get ahead of the virus with this younger age group and provide them with HIV risk reduction skills before they become sexually active," the donors, the UNICEF and the Namibian government said in a joint release.Adapted from:
