We use radio to amplify youth voices across Africa, giving them the skills and tools to speak about their lives

Go Back

World AIDS Day in South Africa was commemorated with a group march from Nolungile clinic to a mass event in a community hall in Khayelitsha, Cape Town.

Our youth facilitators hosted at the World AIDS Day event in O.R Thambo Hall for the 3rd year in a row. They did an amazing job and worked the crowd of approximately 1000 primary and high school going youth, parents and grandparents. The main theme of the event was “test and treat” and the Future Positive youth reporters hosted a one hour live radio show engaging people on the topic: “How youth engage with sex and sexuality with their parents”. This opened up the conversation about health implications and risky behaviour. The event was organised in collaboration with Doctors Without Borders/MSF South Africa, Zip Zap Circus School, The Department of Health, Sonke Gender Justice, Anova Health , Treatment Action Campaign and City of Cape Town.

There were testing tables available throughout the event and the crowd was entertained with drama, singing and performances by Zip Zap Circus. You can view more photos from the event here.

This was once again an important event to be involved in to share the work we do with young people and conversations about HIV.
