Uganda: Texts HIV Education

Valentine's Day is synonymous with romance and love, now in Uganda it means HIV education through cell phone texts. Three organizations joined forces on February 14th to inform Ugandan youths in Mbarara about HIV: Text to Change (TTC), the AIDS Information Center and mobile phone company Celtel Uganda. The initiative hopes to appeal largely to young Ugandans and text messages supply health information and HIV awareness.
