Ethiopia: Youth, HIV/AIDS Experts Hold Panel Discussion

June 24, 2003

More than 40 youth and HIV experts from eastern and southern Africa attended a Red Cross training institute on the epidemic Monday in Ethiopia. The UNICEF-organized workshop provides opportunities for countries in the region to share experiences and develop better ways to involve young people in the fight against AIDS. "This workshop will help tap into various expertise and come up with ways to help the youth [ages 15-24] prevent HIV/AIDS," said Richard Mabalah, UNICEF's regional advisor on HIV/AIDS prevention and youth development.
