H.I.V. talk

Friday was taken up with a morning trip to a secondary school an hour and a half away to deliver an H.I.V. awareness talk.  It was really fun but informative, and passed on an incredibly important message in a way that was easy to understand.  Afterwards, seventy or so children took advantage of the opportunity to be tested and were all negative.  It seems that programmes such as this run by Volunteer Uganda (and explained in more detail here)  have been extremely successful in reducing the spread of this disease and reducing the stigma attached to those who have it.
