Connecting local responses around the world
FIrst AIDS Kit is moving to a page!
The First AIDS Kit project was established to reduce new HIV infections among youths in Malaysia, Thailand and Philippines, through peer education targeted at at-risk and vulnerable youth communities.
Growing numbers of youths engaging in risky behavior exposing themselves to HIV/AIDS calls for immediate action. However, response to HIV/AIDS often miss out the participation of youths, especially the most at risk and vulnerable population.
While most projects focus on awareness raising to the general public, HIV/AIDS education does not reach out to the most-at-risk youth populations due to the stigma attached to them that contributed to their marginalization and disenfranchisement.
First AIDS Kit offers capacity-building approach by facilitating drawing out community knowledge, develop these into life tools, and bring these back into the community for them to assess their own risk, benchmark their own goals, measure their own progress and celebrate own change First AIDS Kit Malaysia empowers them to difference in their lives.
Do not miss out your chance to make a difference!
