Harare| Africaid in collaboration with World Education Inc/Batwana (WEI/B) reached adolescents and young people between the ages of 10-24 years with information on Sexual Reproductive Health particularly the importance of HIV Testing Services (HTS) at Children’s Sports Tournament which was held in Harare. The sports tournament was held under the theme-: “No test, No fame, Get Tested No Blame”. In an interview on the sidelines of the tournament, an adolescent from House of Smiles-an organisation which programmes on adolescents and young people living and working on the streets said young people have the right to know their HIV status so that coming up with a generation of adolescents and young people that are well conversant with health related issues specifically Sexual Reproductive Health will be viable. During the exhibition, Africaid reached 81 adolescents (40 boys and 41 girls) with HIV prevention, care and support information.
