HIV/AIDS

South African Scout Association HIV/AIDS Programme

Over 50% of new infections with HIV now occur in young people.

4 million South Africans, and 25 million people in Africa, are HIV positive.

Young people are particularly vulnerable to HIV/AIDS, but they also have the power to change the course of the epidemic.

Mobilizing young people to respond effectively to AIDS is a key to the fight against AIDS.

Scouting is the world's largest youth organisation, with more than 28 million members in 216 countries...

...Together, Scouts around the world can change the course of this disease.
