1. December is World Aids Day!
Since 1988, the World Aids Day takes place on every 1 December. Established by the United Nations, it has since become the most important regular date for the purpose of drawing attention to AIDS and ensuring that this illness does not become forgotten. Despite improved medicines, an infection with HIV remains fatal. More than 23 million people have died following the consequences of AIDS since 1981 – this equals the population of the whole of Scandinavia. According to UNICEF, 40 million people world wide are infected with AIDS, half of which are girls and women. Furthermore, according to the Children’s Fund, 25 years after the epidemic began, AIDS affects children and young children above all.
In addition to state funded organizations, there are also private firms involved in the area of youth AIDS prevention who operate without state funding or donations. An example is the educational-therapeutic specialist Donna Vita, who has successfully offered prevention-related materials on the market for many years. Donna Vita made a conscious decision to take on the AIDS prevention game Think Negative! developed especially for the youth market in their programme after May 2006. “We hope to foster dialogue between adults and young people. At this age, purely factual information has almost no effect. It is more effective when we try to convey knowledge via playful components. Those who laugh whilst learning, ponder and argue, simply profit more” said Marion Mebes.
This is supported by experts such as Thorsten Berschuck from the AIDS Hilfe Frankfurt e.V., who calls Think Negative! “a very interesting and useful board game,” or Claudia Poser from UNICEF Gera, who find the idea of Think Negative! “very interesting” and believes that it “is a great help for educational and information work, especially regarding the theme AIDS.” More information regarding the AIDS prevention game for children aged 12 and above – can be obtained in both German and English from the website www.etlog-health.de.
Information regarding the range of products offered by the publishers Donna Vita can be obtained at www.donnavita.de. Information about AIDS-Hilfe Frankfurt e.V. can be found under http://frankfurt.aidshilfe.de; for UNICEF Gera under www.gera.unicef.de.
