34

Traditional leaders in Chikhwawa district in the area of Paramount Chief Lundu have called on parents to talk about issues of sex in their homes in order to reduce HIV among young people.

Senior Village Headman Nkhabekachi made the remarks during an HIV/AIDS awareness campaign which was conducted by Youth Network and Counselling (YONECO).

HIV Test MalawiAccording to Senior Chief Nkhabekachi, openness on sex issues between parents and children remains a problem in the district.

He said many parents in the country believe that sex education issues need to be taught during initiation ceremonies and at churches.

The chief however said children need to learn issues of sex from their parents and guardians.

“Such conversations need to happen earlier before the kids get wrong information from their friends,” he said.

The sensitisation campaigns are being conducted by YONECO with support from United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).

  5. The blind leading the blind in this case will probably result in raising the rates of SIDA/AIDS infections.
    Keeping the stupidity of religion away from children and education will help for sure.
    Ensuring teachers have all up to date materials and resources to help educate children and demanding that they use it is probably the best way.
    Government programs to inform people about how SIDA/AIDS is spread would be a step in the right direction as well.

  6. Sex outside marriage is fornication,so if u teach a 12/13 yr old child podzadzifika kulowa m’banja @ the age of 24, agonana ndi anthu angati? & period imenei nde yotengera HIV.take CARE!! Pz teach them 2 abstain.amabungwe asakunamizeni ndi NDALAMA.

    • Abstinence education never works.
      All over the world,telling children not to have sex when it is a natural drive,only results in more children becoming pregnant or picking up STD’S.
