Young Voices lobby for HIV/AIDS support

Members of the Young Voices group running through the Cheshire Homes Society of Zambia have lobbied the government to include people with disabilities in all efforts to prevent and treat HIV/AIDS. Working together with Leonard Cheshire Disability, they have contributed to 13 awareness raising campaigns through which over 1,300 young people with disabilities learned about HIV/AIDS prevention. The project also supports orphans and children with disabilities to attend school and adults with disabilities to access health and social care.
