YONECO has embarked on awareness raising campaign about the newly introduced HIV Self-Testing Kit among fishermen and fish mongers.
Programme Support Manager for YONECO, Dunreck Pande explained that fishermen and fishmongers are among the hard to reach with HIV information because of the nature of the job. Thus, we decided to advantage of the minutes they come out of the lake to meet the fishmongers.
“It is not easy to engage these two during the business hour but they also understand that that their health comes first. Thus, we deliver the messages, engage in discuss as well as respond to the questions they have,” said Pande.
