The Nation – ExxonMobil sponsors HIV/AIDS, malaria project

She explained that the initiative, which kicked off in November last year, saw youth leaders from various communities being trained  on HIV/AIDS and malaria, after which they  proceeded to public schools.

“What we do is that we train youth leaders between 18 and 25 with a curriculum that we developed ourselves. Then, we send them to public schools to train and teach students across Lagos, based on what we have taught them. I can say that we have made giant strides in the project.”

According to her, the programme, which also carries out free HIV/AIDS and malaria tests for participants as well as follow up counselling, has been implemented various  across the state.
