Health lesson 7: AIDS/HIV 
Ida and Irene went to kitukiro to continue with the STIs and Basically dealing with syphillis,Gonorrhea and HIV. Ida started with a review of the previous lesson then went on to invite Irene to continue with the lesson. Irene started with differentiating the three diseases,interactive participation on how they are spread,signs and symptoms,and prevention. Irene continued to inform the community that unlike gonorrhea and syphillis, HIV can not be cured but drugs to lower the ability of the virus to weaken the body are freely provided and reliable. Irene told the community that all these diseases can commonly be acquired through the same way though the signs and symptoms can vary in both men and women, Irene also explained the reason why Gonorrhea signs are more recognizable in men than women and how the new born babies can easily acquire syphillis and suffer from it from the mother, and if these diseases are not treated can lead to infections of the urethra,prostate gland, cancers and infertility so Irene advised the members to seek medical help as soon as they identify the problems or any signs.
