Learning Objectives
To prevent HIV spread in the community
Manuela went to Kivule community to teach Life Skills, she taught about how HIV and other sexual transmitted diseases can be passed from one person to another, the reason why she planned to teach this lesson was to let people know the different ways how HIV is transmitted from one person to another so that they can avoid negative practices which can lead to HIV transmission. For example she told the community members that HIV is transmitted through having unprotected sex with an infected person, sharing sharp objects like razor blades, needles, through mother to child transmission and through blood transfusions. When Manuela finished teaching about HIV transmission she then asked the community members a question about how HIV can be prevented, the community members mentioned some answers like proper use of condoms, abstinence, avoid sharing sharp instruments, mother should always give birth in the hospital so that they prevent their babies from catching the infection and married people must remain faithful to one another. Finally she told them to keep time next time because they are going to learn about positive living when some one is HIV positive, Manuela also advised the community members to keep their belongings properly because every where people are complaining that they have stolen their chickens, goats, cows among others, she also told the women not to ask for a lot of things from their husband that it may tempt them to steal which is not good and also she encouraged the men to remain faithful to women.
