A Decade of Work 2001-2010
The ICA HIV/AID Prevention Initiative
describes the Campaign’s three phases.
I Preparation and Demonstration 2001 – 2004
By the end of 2004 eight African countries were working to ‘Break the Silence” on HIV/AIDS, reaching 105 villages with 432 trained as peer educators.
II Broader and Deeper 2005 – 2006
By 2006 5,100 were trained as caregivers, community educators and counselors. Work with youth in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Nigeria used Youth as Facilitative Leaders to train young people to be peer educators; 4,500 youth were educated about HIV and leadership. The Campaign expanded with three new opportunities with the Kenya Ministry of Health, Stanford University’s Positive Self-Management Program, and a demonstration project in Ngwesi, Kenya.
III Integration and Expansion 2007 – 2010
From Ngwesi,Kenya the theme “Getting HIV Under Control” became the Campaign’s focus. The theme raised questions of “How to prevent AIDS?”, “How can a community get AIDS under control?” and “How to support the results the Campaign initiated?”
