President Mwai Kibaki will today launch
a major HIV/Aids campaign.
The campaign, dubbed Total War on
HIV/Aids and spearheaded by the Ministry of Health, aims at
influencing Kenyans to change their sexual behaviour. It
targets religious organisations, the youth, people in the
transport industry and teachers.
The launch today heralds five days of
conferences by religious organisations in the country.
The conferences, from tomorrow up to
Friday, will draw 500 participants involved in the fight
against HIV/Aids. More than two million people have died from
Aids in Kenya since it was first diagnosed two decade ago.
The campaign starts tomorrow with a
conference by the Kenya Catholic Secretariat in Karen. The
Anglicans will have theirs on Tuesday at the Limuru Conference
Centre and the Methodists at the Methodist Guest House on
The Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims
will have a seminar at Bounty Hotel on Thursday and the
Presbyterian Church of East Africa will have theirs at their
Lay Training Centre at Zambezi.
