To know the different ways HIV is transmitted and ways in which it is not transmitted.
Introduction Lorna was in this village teaching on HIV/AIDS Transmission. Overview After minutes of waiting Lorna was joined by the chairman water user committee, the mobilizer and while waiting for others to join, Lorna engaged them in a conversation about their borehole. Lorna asked whether the borehole was working fine and the challenges. They said the borehole was working well and that previously they had worked on the cylinder and bearings. Lorna thanked them for the good work. She asked about the borehole balance and they told her they had about 200,000/=. About the challenges, they share their borehole with a nearby village however, they have been having struggles with them when it comes to contributing money towards the account. However after the borehole broke and they repaired the borehole, they later saw the use of collecting this money. Lorna also gave them an idea of lending this money out to faithful members in the community of which they can return with interest so as for their money to grow and not just sit there as well as for safety purposes. They thanked Lorna for the idea and said they would look into it. When members had gathered Lorna began the lesson. Lorna introduced the topic of the day How HIV is transmitted.She asked the members the different ways and they responded. They mentioned ways like sharing sharp instruments, blood contact with an infected person, having sex with an infected person. On sharing sharp instruments, Lorna asked if it was possible for each person to have their own for example razor blade, safety pins, hair clippers?. They said it’s possible but hard. Lorna asked even razor blades they said they are used to sharing and they added that they can be careful which sent everyone laughing. She also mentioned the fluids in which HIV can be transmitted through which are; semen, blood, breast milk, rectal fluids. One gentleman asked if HIV can be spread through sweat and Lorna said no. Lorna also asked if it can spread through saliva and they said no, she asked how about when sharing tooth brushes ? , they said no unless their is blood. They also looked at ways through HIV is not transmitted like through sharing cups, plates, hugging, shaking hands among others. Conclusion Lorna concluded by thanking them for coming and told them the next lesson will be on the immune system. 

Next Visit: 2018-10-12 - Purpose: Teach the next topic on the immune system.
