GES asked to provide audio-visuals for HIV/AIDS education
Miss Doreen Aidoo, a teacher at the Gomoa Ankamu District Assembly Primary School, has appealed to the Ghana Education Service to provide basic schools with audio-visuals to enhance education on HIV/AIDS.
Miss Aidoo held that the use of audio-visuals to further illustrate and highlight the mode of transmission and the need to protect oneself against HIV/AIDS would make a significant impact on viewers.
She made the suggestion in remarks to participants, including students and school peer educators at a film-show organised to sensitise them on HIV/AIDS Gomoa Ankamu.
It was organised by Democratic Muslim Youth Organisation, a social group.
Miss Aidoo also proposed the extension of the HIV/AIDS Peer Educators Concept, currently being practiced in Junior and Senior High Schools, down to primary level.
Ms Margaret Eduah, Gomoa West District School Health Education Programme Co-ordinator, called for the formation of HIV/AIDS Clubs in the schools.
