The Polytechnic of Namibia (PoN) last week held its two day 16th HIV/AIDS and Alcohol Awareness Campaign under the theme: No Youth No Future.
The two day event was aimed at addressing factors that are linked to HIV/AIDS, particularly that of alcohol abuse. Speaking at the launch, PoN Vice Rector: Academic Affairs and Research, Andrew Niikondo, stressed the need for young people to make the right decisions and change their behaviours towards HIV/AIDS.
“Young people have grown up in a world changed by AIDS, yet many still lack comprehensive and correct knowledge about how this pandemic is contracted and how to prevent its infection. This situation persists even though Namibia has programmes for young people to education, information and services that could protect them form harm,” he said. > > > > Read More
