[edit] Title

Love Life: Valentine's Day Football Gala

[edit] Purpose and Approach

In two PCV's communities, a round robin tournament will be held on successive Fridays. Four teams will play a round robin for a total of six games: three in the morning and three in the afternoon and evening. Each game will involve a brief halftime presentation concerning HIV/AIDS and STI prevention and family planning. These activities will include male and female condom demonstrations performed by nurses and prominent community members who have been trained to do condom demonstrations; an activity that demonstrates the strength of condoms to disprove the common belief that they break easily; and a presentation to small groups using an sexually transmitted infections (STIs) flipchart. The winners of each tournament will be determined by points based on the number of games won. All participants will receive a certificate of participation and the winning team in each village will receive a new football.

After each of the tournaments is concluded in their respective communities, another football match will be held the following Friday between the winning team from each community. The final match will include an opening talk about the relevance of HIV/AIDS to the youth of these communities and HIV/AIDS prevention. Nurses will give a family planning talk during halftime regarding various birth control options available to them, and the match will be followed by a brief awards ceremony. Certificates of participation will be handed out and a small trophy will be given to the winning team. There will also be some time for a brief discussion between the two teams about important issues that affect them in their respective communities.

[edit] Objective

The community has additionally identified the following specific goals and objectives in order of priority:

  1. Introduce various methods of HIV/AIDS prevention to two communities in the Northern Region of Ghana.
