In an effort to scale up access to HIV/AIDS and SRH information among the youth in Malawi, Positivo has started a practical, participatory and appropriate journey in empowering youth to become key players in health messaging related to HIV/AIDS and Sexual Reproductive Health related issues using music as a medium. Recently, the Ministry of Education in Lilongwe has chosen Chankhandwe Community Day Secondary School in rural Lilongwe to benefit from the first school based musical workshop in Malawi. Our technical team travelled to Chankhandwe CDSS to conduct the first research to give us more information about HIV/AIDS and SRH on the ground and to help us understand the level of understanding of issues about HIV/AIDS and SRH amongst Chankhandwe’s youth. Positivo will conduct the initial workshop from 5th August to 17th August at Chankhandwe CDSS Lilongwe.
This project, is part of the activities of a three year project proposed by Child Rights Information and Documentation Centre (CRIDOC), Journalists Association against AIDS(JournAIDS) and Positivo called: “Scaling up Access to Information to Youth in HIV and Sexual Reproductive Health
