Video Game Teaches Kenyan Teens HIV Prevention

July 30, 2009

PlusNews/IRIN examines a multi-player PC video game that teaches Kenyan teens how to avoid becoming infected with HIV. "Pamoja Mtaani" -- Swahili for "Together in the Hood" -- hones in "on five key behaviours that can reduce HIV infections among youth: delaying the onset of sexual activity, abstinence, avoiding multiple sex partners, correct and consistent condom use, and uptake of voluntary counselling and testing services," the news service writes.  It was developed by Warner Bros. Entertainment in partnership with PEPFAR, according to PlusNews/IRIN (7/30).
