Project Highlight: In order to ensure that the project is sustainable, effective W and accepted with an enabling environment, we allowed the target S communities to take ownership of the projects themselves. This empowered them to face the challenges affecting them, and also ensuring that they areI sustainable. Participation has been shown to have positive effects on health S in and of itself and studies frequently show the necessity of ownership by the A community to successfully combat HIV/AIDS. In the first, second and third month of the project implementation, OROL has conducted series of I advocacy visits to the project communities and the school sites within. This is D to take the relevant stakeholders through the project implementation and I also to seek their acceptance into the communities. OROL will continue to follow-up on the gains of the initial advocacy efforts, through regular visits D and meetings with the stakeholders in the target communities. .

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO KNOW IF YOU’VE GOT HIV? If you think you may have HIV, it is important to find out as soon as possible. HIV is most easily transmitted when the level of virus in the body is at its highest—shortly after HIV infection and at the late stage of the disease. Even in the early stages of HIV infection, you can take concrete steps to protect your long-term health. Beginning medical care before you begin to get sick may give you many more years of healthy life. And knowing you’re HIV positive allows you to take the necessary precautions to prevent others from becoming infected. If you are HIV positive, it is important to see your doctor regularly. Get tested for tuberculosis and other opportunistic infections. Keep your immune system strong through good nutrition, adequate sleep, and not smoking or drinking alcohol. Also key is to find a support system. It is important to remember that you are not alone. HIV is not an easy virus to pass from one person to another, like the flu. It is not transmitted through food or air (for instance, by coughing or sneezing). There has never been a case where a person was infected by a household member, relative, co-worker, or friend through casual or everyday contact such as sharing eating utensils and bathroom facilities or hugging and kissing. (Most scientists agree that while HIV transmission through deep or prolonged “French” kissing might be possible, it’s extremely unlikely.) Always make sure as an individual that you don’t share unsterilized instruments like razor, clippers, scissors etc as it is very possible to get the virus through this means. Finally on a lighter note, if you won’t or can’t be faithful, use condoms correctly and consistently.
