Communication, Information and HIV/AIDS: UNESCO-CI:
UNESCO participates strongly in the battle against HIV/AIDS and the devastating impact of the plague.
"UNESCO's focus on preventive education represents an important niche in the worldwide campaign to arrest and reverse this scourge. Communication and information can help to fight HIV/AIDS by changing young people's behaviour through preventive education schemes. UNESCO has undertaken a number of activities with the aim to increase awareness of HIV/AIDS prevention among young people based on the new possibilities offered by ICT. An access to comprehensive and reliable youth-friendly information in quest of behavioral changes has been promoted."
