Intervention on Education, HIV and young people

Honorable Ministers, dear delegates all, I come from Guyana and I am currently a Special Youth Fellow for UNAIDS Special Youth Programme in Geneva. I am very active in my country, acting for several associations and organizations.It is a great honor to give an intervention on education, HIV and young people. I feel education is not only the key to prevention of HIV transmission, but vital to treatment, care and support for universal access for young people. A comprehensive HIV education in schools at an early age helps to replace stigma and discrimination with care and support. Educated people on HIV will increase access to treatment and care and will address HIV and human rights.
As we approach the 20th Anniversary of World AIDS Day with the theme Keep the promise-leadership, my key message today is to provide young people with knowledge and information and equip people with life skills to put knowledge into practice to create the right balance for change.
As we move more and more to the information age, music plays an important part in behaviour change and communication amongst people. I now have the pleasure to introduce Serge Djoungong, also known as Nega. He is a Swiss rapper born in Switzerland from Cameroon parents. He is the author of the song he is performing today. He wrote it on the theme of HIV especially for the 48th session of the International Conference on Education.

Congratulations Korey. You are such an inspiration :-)

Is information enough according to you? What about facilitation of discussion and support to action?
