The Department of National Education, Youth and Sport (D.E.N.J.S.), the Monegasque Red Cross (C.R.M.) and FIGHT AIDS MONACO (F.A.M.) are uniting together once again to focus on a common project by organizing a special event for students in the final year of secondary school regarding the prevention of AIDS and sexually transmissible diseases.  

Over the last few years, it appears that young adults are being less careful, although the risks still are very high; today 40 million people are infected with the AIDS virus throughout the world. UNAIDS has estimated that the under 25s represent half of all new HIV* infections. In France, from the 13 325 new cases diagnosed between June 2003 and January 2006, 28% concerned young adults under the age of 29, the majority young women. The association Solidarité Sida, used to implementing action for a young audience, has been asked to present an « interactive event focused on sexuality and the prevention of AIDS » in the Principality. After the huge success of the «nuits du Zapping» event, Solidarité Sida introduced the « après-midi du Zapping » - a fun and focused way of teaching the young generation about prevention. The principle of the afternoon is based on an interactive game with questions that the participants may have on sexuality and AIDS; a certain amount of time is also spent meeting professionals from the health industry. D.E.N.J.S., C.R.M. and F.A.M. would like to raise young adults’ awareness of the issues at stake regarding the HIV epidemic and of the reality of everyday life for those infected.
