Every year, SLAE Foundation makes sure it reaches thousands of men, women, and youth in outreach sessions throughout the 10 Regions of Cameroon. Mostly we focus on the marginalized part of the country where poverty and illiteracy challenge families, it’s paramount that folks receive accurate and relevant information for HIV prevention. SLAE Foundation peers educators undergo a 6-month training in basic biology and sexual health, gender, and communication skills to supply effective outreach. Help EFA to empower an AIDS-free generation!
Over 600,000 people in Cameroon are HIV-positive. consistent with the foremost recent Demographic and Health Survey, only one-third of Cameroonian youth skills to stop HIV transmission, and only 11% had received an HIV test within the last year. Affording and accessing HIV services is extremely difficult for poor, rural youth; stigma in their communities is high. In this project, we still provide community-based HIV services to over 30,000 youth in rural communities in northern Cameroon.
SLAE Foundation peer educators give youth and families critical knowledge for HIV prevention, gender-based violence, and family health. because of SLAE Foundation’s partnership with health facilities throughout the regions, they also help connect communities to HIV and sexual health services (including prevention of mother-to-child transmission), education, testing, referrals, home-based care, and counseling.
HIV+ youths and families will access testing, treatment, and care from you via us. Communities are going to be better educated to stop the transmission of HIV. The Stigma towards HIV+ people will decrease. HIV+ persons are going to be leaders in their communities and live healthier, more productive lives.
