In June 2016, CHESIDS launched an initiative to encourage young people to make an impact on the health of disadvantaged rural or urban slum communities. HIV sensitization and testing were offered to community members. They were informed on awareness, transmission, prevention, care, support and treatment of HIV.

As part of the day’s events, community members were offered examination and screening for HIV. HIV test results received referrals and/or prescriptions depending on their test results and medical history.
