Meeting on AIDS Prevention in Bamako, Mali, July 2004
People in charge of youth from some 10 African countries met at a three-day workshop entitled "AIDS Concerns Us All" in Mali's capital. The event was organized in partnership with the "Mouvement de Réflexion et d'Action pour le Développement" (MARD).
The meeting, a first INFOYOUTH event in Bamako, came at the end of a project that produced two educational tools to be used in the fight against the HIV/AIDS: an educational CD Rom (available from INJEP) and a paper publication Jeunes et Sida. Both tools are free of charge for educators to help them in their work to make young people in rural areas better understand HIV/AIDS and to learn about AIDS prevention. The meeting consisted of workshops, presentations, interviews and interactive educational games for the participants from Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Côte d'Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Guinea, Mali, Mauritius, Niger, Senegal and Togo.
