On 7 September 2022, YONECO organized an HIV/AIDS session with young people from Mng’ona and Mtilirwa villages in the area of Traditional Authority (T/A) Mkumbira in NKhata Bay district.
The sessions were facilitated using Hope Kit Tool. A total of 42 (25 Males; 17 Females) young people participated in the sessions. YOONECO also raised awareness about HIV prevention and the importance of accessing HIV testing Services (HTS) among the youth.
The participants were also made aware of various institutions, including YONECO, which provide free HIV self-testing kits.
The sessions are being conducted at a time when Malawi continues to register increased cases of new HIV infections among young people.
