Know Your HIV Status football tournament
The LASS ‘Know Your HIV Status’ football tournament in July 2011 achieved more than the expected outcomes. The focus of the tournament was to raise awareness of HIV, ‘kick out’ stigma and promote rapid HIV testing , in particular among African men, because LASS statistics over the past 2 years highlight a reluctance to be involved in HIV issues and HIV testing. HIV was a topic of conversation across the ground – with a queue for rapid HIV tests at the LASS outreach van. Twenty nine African men and three African women were tested for HIV during the day.
