first_imgWilma den HartighFind out more about using MediaClubSouthAfrica.com materialSouth Africa’s national youth HIV prevention campaign,  LoveLife, has launched a new initiative to fight the spread of HIV and Aids by building identity and self-worth in young people.The campaign tag, L2 M3 What’s your formula? (L2 = loving life M3 = making my move), is a slight change of tack from the previous “Make Your Move” initiative. L2 M3 builds on the earlier campaign that encouraged people to take control of their lives and believe in themselves.“Youth is a time of turbulence for all young people and issues of identity are massive,” said  LoveLife CEO Grace Matlhape. “This is why our starting point is self-worth.”The new approach puts the spotlight on the absence of belonging and purpose, particularly in the lives of marginalised young people.  “We know that awareness of HIV is high, but young people still put up with risk and we want to address to reduce people’s risk tolerance,” Matlhape said.The campaign will focus on the way young people perceive their circumstances and how they deal with societal pressures. “Without a sense of future, identity and self-worth, youngsters may have little motivation to protect themselves from infection,” she said in a statement.One of the main goals of the campaign is to get young people to think about their future and how they plan to achieve their goals. Trina DasGupta, media director for  Lovelife, explained that young people can only do this if they understand their identity. “The formula will address the universal teen feeling of invisibility and the desire for acceptance, as well as provide an alternative to materialism, which is often used today to achieve acknowledgement,” DasGupta said.HIV/Aids communication programmes in South AfricaMatlhape emphasised that even though a lot of work still needs to be done to bring the pandemic under control, the importance of HIV/Aids communication programmes in South Africa should not be underestimated.The recent Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) National HIV/Aids survey findings suggest that HIV/Aids communication programmes have helped to highlight the importance of testing, the dangers of risky sexual behaviour and knowledge of HIV.Of South Africa’s four large-scale ongoing national programmes – LoveLife, Khomanani, Soul City and Soul Buddyz – LoveLife and Soul City had a high reach into the youth age group. In 2008,  LoveLife reached 79.1% of youth aged 15 to 24. Interestingly, although  LoveLife is considered to mainly target the youth, its reach also extended to 71.2% of adults in the 25 to 49 years age group.The findings also show a slight decrease of HIV prevalence, from 10.3% in 2005 to 8.6% in 2008, among youth between the ages of 15 to 24. This decrease is attributed to a significant increase in condom use among males and females within this age group. It is also believed that HIV communication programmes that reach a large population within this age group may have played a role in HIV education.Matlhape said that she is encouraged by the survey findings.  “It gives us feedback on how young people are responding to the messages they are receiving and the survey shows a shift in thinking, particularly in young people.”The 2009  LoveLife media campaign will run for a year. Various media will be used, including television, radio public service announcements, radio programmes on 22 stations nationwide, print, a new-look website, as well as  LoveLife’s mobile social network, www.mymsta.mobi.Related articlesFree Femidoms free women HIV in South Africa stabilising Changing SA one heart at a time Preventing HIV with OneLove Anti-Aids gel offers hope Useful linksLoveLife Human Sciences Research CouncilSouth African National HIV Prevalence,Incidence, Behaviour and Communication Survey, 2008 Medical Research CouncilCentre for Aids Development, Research and EvaluationDepartment of Healthlast_img read more

first_imgOK our football team is doing awesome today. I wonder how much of tonight Dana will remember…. #okstate— Samantha Vicent (@samanthavicent) November 10, 20129. I feel like Oklahoma State using the diamond formation against Dana is like Japan selling Americans TV sets. Oh we appreciate you inventing this for us, now how does it taste, is your wallet empty yet? 10. Really a great bounce back win from what could have been a season-spiraling-out-of-control loss in Manhattan last weekend. OSU needs some momentum from Tech heading to Norman over Thanksgiving but an 8-4 (or even 9-3?!) record somehow still isn’t out of the question.Back with more coverage tomorrow.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

Thank you and cheers! uspw 6735892 2Photo Attribution: US PresswireBox ScoreBowl eligible! (kidding…kind of). I was at the game and had absolutely no service so I apologize for the lack of updates. Your local AT&T provider thanks you for your monthly financial support of their ineptitude also.Won’t be doing a favorite tweets section but should have everything else up for you over the rest of the weekend. Enjoy!1. The quarterback situation is just…really…it’s kind of getting embarrassing. When you (Gundy) tell me “Lunt is available but not starting” to me that means Lunt is no longer the starting QB. Then the “Walsh is available” thing comes out of nowhere when three weeks ago you told me he was our for the year, see you in spring ball. I no longer trust anything Gundy says about any QB other than the fact that we’re going to play one and he’s going to throw for a lot of yards.2. For those at the game — how about the noise coming from the speakers over GIA for the entire game? Seems like an athletic department that generates $70M in revenue a year could…you know…figure out how to not provide an unprofessional gameday atmosphere. Maybe I’m crazy.3. Josh Stewart had 13 for 172 but it felt like he had 31 for 721. When Chelf needed a big play or got in trouble Stewart was always exactly where he needed to be and Chelf kept going back to the well. Great chemistry in #10s first start. 4. I was honestly more surprised that Justin Gilbert broke up two passes than that he took a kickoff 99 yards to the house. Speaking of the return, he now trails C.J. Spiller by two TD for the all-time NCAA kick return record. Also, Gundy had a great metaphor on his postgame show for the way Gilbert responded to his stamp of approval on Gilbert’s talent earlier this week. This is a parahprase…It’s like when you’ve been in a fight with your wife for two or three days and you go buy her flowers and tell her you’re sorry even if you don’t mean it. She responds well to that. Same thing with Gilbert.5. Dana’s return was everything I wanted it to be: flying headsets, terrible defense, f-bomb showers, special teams disaster, the live sacrifice of a graduate assistant (not McGee) at halftime with billowing clouds of Red Bull-laden smoke emanating from the visitors’ locker room. And an Oklahoma State W.6. Chelf played really well. The pick was about as much his fault as it was mine and he made all the throws he needed to. He’s definitely more Lunt than Walsh because his arm is above average but he also makes better decisions than #11. The game seems a little slower for him. I’m fine if we want to ride him the rest of the way but Monken and Gundy really need to figure it out before next weekend because I’m getting tired of QB musical chairs[1. Not that Monken or Gundy gives a crap what I think.] every week and I suspect all three of those guys are too.7. The black-gray-gray combo looked terrific in person tonight (and you could see the numbers!) Several people tried to convince me that Quinn Sharp was your uniform Heisman winner tonight but he wasn’t (check back tomorrow for who was).8. Two great tweets right here:We don’t know that Dana Holgerson didn’t invent 4 Lokos.— Nolan (@nolancox) November 10, 2012last_img read more
