Sentebale presents Radio Positive
SENTEBALE PRESENTS RADIO POSITIVE WITH DUMA FM, BOTSWANA FOR WORLD AIDS DAY, 1ST DECEMBER 2018
TUNE IN HERE:
This World AIDS Day, Sentebale want to inspire young people across southern Africa, uniting them in the belief that they can be the generation that makes significant progress in the fight against HIV.
On the 1st December, Sentebale’s Let Youth Lead advocates will take over one of Botswana’s major radio stations, Duma FM presenting “Radio Positive”. Starting at 0730hrs (GMT+2hrs), a series of programmes will run for just over five hours live from Railpark Mall in Gabarone enabling young people to speak about southern Africa’s HIV epidemic, demonstrating how their generation’s positive attitude and behaviour will lead to a renewed powerful fight against the disease.
The show aims to provide a platform to generate an open conversation about the issues facing youth surrounding HIV/AIDS, and to encourage thousands of young people in Botswana and further afield across the region to tune in and be a part of the day’s programme. Topics will include the effect stigma and discrimination continues to have on young people accessing health services and support, the risks associated with not “knowing your status” – the global theme for this year’s World AIDS Day – as well as the importance of developing and being in healthy relationships. Interspersing these very real and serious topics will include positive playlists and information about Sentebale’s work and where young people can access support.
Please tune-in on Saturday, 1st December from 0730hrs (GMT+2) to listen to our live show. You can also call in on +267 3500 131, or SMS +267 76 281 885 to get involved in Botswana’s big conversation. Follow us tomorrow to see who is presenting and contributing to the special programme on World AIDS Day.
