Mountain Movers II

This programme is a continuation of the original Mountain Movers programme, which was launched in 2011.

Mountain Movers II was launched in 2015 as a programme aimed at reducing HIV infections among youth aged between 15 and 24 years, as well as creating awareness on tuberculosis (TB). Parents and children are involved in special communication forums teaching them to have open and constructive conversations on sexual matters. The programme uses awareness campaigns to provide information on HIV and TB through services provided in health centres.

17,862 young people aged 15 - 24 benefited in HIV and STIs voluntary counseling and testing.

54,000 young boys and girls reached by peer educators during community sensitisations on HIV prevention.
