Ugandan Youth Create Murals to Help Promote HIV Prevention

December 3, 2009
The Kayunga Youth Center helped design murals that are helping with HIV prevention in their community in rural Uganda.

The Kayunga Youth Center helped design murals that are helping with HIV prevention in their community in rural Uganda. The Youth Center is part of the PEPFAR program at MHRP's Uganda site, known locally as the Makerere University Walter Reed Project. The images used on the murals seem to have a positive effect on other youth in the community, effectively conveying key messages in HIV prevention such as the importance of HIV/AIDS testing. A Peace Corp volunteer worked with Center on the project, and a feature article highlights the project.
