Behavior Change Intervention for HIV/AIDS/STI Prevention

 While the solution to these threats certainly lies in education and changing the depressed socio-economic conditions of people in the countryside, the most 'at risk' of the threat are the rural women.

WATCH's present activities in this program are Peer-Based Behavior Change Intervention, Awareness Raising Camps, School/College Education Program, Awareness raising through literacy classes, and an anonymous blood testing and counseling program and Well-Being Center for Sex Workers and HIV+. The participatory workshops, training, and hearings, the presentation of information specially through awareness raising materials and the open dialogues/discussions are a way of facilitating the people to reflect on their situations and take their own initiatives to change these situations. It is hoped that the participants from the Awareness Raising Camps, the School/College Education Program and the Literacy classes will gain an awareness and understanding so that they are able to come to a consensus on how to prevent and control STDs, HIV, AIDS and the forced sex trade in their areas.
