An activity that is aimed at correcting a lot of misinformation about HIV, Providing detailed and factual education on HIV/AIDS , counseling and testing individuals at different cadres to ensure a safer health status and maintaining a healthy lifestyle pending from the vital exposures and knowledge imbibed by the individual . The program started by the facilitator creating basic information about HIV/AIDS, some of the vital points mentioned were- HIV is the virus spread by HIV infection. Aids is the most advanced stage of HIV infection. HIV is spread through contact with the blood, semen, pre-seminal fluid, rectal fluids, vaginal fluids, or breast milk of a person infected with HIV. HIV is the infection that causes Aids. HIV has few or no symptoms for up to 10 years or more before symptoms of Aids develop. There is no cure for HIV/Aids, but treatment is available. HIV can be spread during sex play. Latex and condoms offer very good protection against HIV. The facilitator continued by highlighting that we all want to protect ourselves and each other from infections like HIV therefore preventive measures is most advisable. The facilitator emphasized on the symptoms of HIV and how some people develop HIV Symptoms shortly after being infected with other diseases, but it usually takes more than 10 years and HIV has several stages of diseases, the first includes swollen glands in the throat, armpit, or groin. Other early HIV symptoms may last for only a few weeks, and then there are usually no HIV symptoms for many years.

The first session was concluded with lots of questions and answers and HCT awareness program took over, then the testing proper, HCT register, and client –intake form and attendance sheet were all used to ensure accurate reporting and evidences. 4 female teachers were tested and confirmed negative, five students all male were tested and confirmed negative, 1 referral was made at the end of the day on sexually transmitted infections for a female.

Some of the young boys from the ages of 11 to 16 years have started indulging in sexual practices creating a lot of disadvantage in the school and home front. The school management, teachers, parents and other health organization should join hands together to teach and fight against all undue sexual practices, under age practices and immature exposure

CHALLENGES
7. Some people still have that fear and resistance attitude towards testing and finding out their status, this affects the work and progress of preventive actions earlier in an individual.
8. Spiritual beliefs underrate the essence of some people finding out their status “in a score that am above ailments”
9. The factor of confidentiality, stigmatization and discrimination is still one of the core challenges HCT has being facing till date.

RECOMMENDATIONS-
7. Information misconceptions were gathered from the field, some of the students thought they knew about HIV, until the questions started flowing and a play of ignorance revealed itself the suggestion is that visitation of schools should be done more often and HIV CLUBS instituted in schools.
8. Consistent and accurate furnished information on HIV/AIDS should be disseminated amongst teachers; it is a quicker means of getting to the students.
9. The more enlightened and up to date students should be the peer instructors in the various HIV clubs that will be instituted in the schools especially rural schools.
