People to know how to prevent HIV
Manuela went to kigalama village to teach on how HIV is passed from one person to another and how community members can prevent the spread of HIV amongst them. While Manuela was teaching she told the community members that HIV is only passed from one person to another through four fluids for example semen, Vaginal fluids,blood and Brest milk. She also said that the most common way to get in contact with the virus is through having un protected sex with an infected person. After teaching Manuela divided the group members in two groups men alone and women alone they discussed about how they can prevent HIV from infecting them and their family members.
