Raising Schoolchildren's Awareness of HIV/AIDS and its Prevention - Part 2
As part of the preventative health programme offered to schoolchildren by the Department of Education, Youth and Sport, pupils from the Principality are benefitting from a second information session on how to protect themselves against HIV/AIDS.
On Thursday 9 and Friday 10 February, the pupils are taking part in "Zapping Afternoons," held in the Salle des Variétés.
These afternoon events were initiated by the Solidarité Sida association and organised by the Department of Education, Youth and Sport, Fight AIDS Monaco and the Monegasque Red Cross. They enable young people from the Lycée Albert Ier, Monaco's Vocational and Catering School (Lycée Technique et Hôtelier de Monaco), the Lycée François d’Assise – Nicolas Barré and AS Monaco's Football Training Centre to speak freely about issues related to sexuality and AIDS, alternating moments of relaxation with information sessions led by health professionals.
At these afternoon events there are also stands featuring the Free, Anonymous Screening Centre (CDAG) and associations, giving pupils the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of what they have learned during the presentation.
