Learning Objectives
Community members to know that HIV is a problem
Manuela went to Kigalama village and at the same time she also planned to pass by the school, while in the community Manuela found the community members have no yet reached the meeting point so Manuela decided to go to the school and check on the pupils. When she reached school she found the teachers not happy at all, then Manuela was tempted to ask one of them,they told her that they have transferred the school headmaster and they received another headmaster which they don’t think that they will be able to work with as they used to to work with the other. After that Manuela went back to the community members and taught them about positive living and knowledge about windows period. She told them that, for them to have positive living when they are HIV positive, they must eat well balanced food, have enough rest, always go for any medical checkups, be happy, treat all other sexually transmitted diseases and use condoms whenever they want to have sexual inter course. Manuela went a head and told the members that HIV virus can hide so they should test their blood at least for three times after every three months for nine months.
