Monaco high school students were treated to an “Afternoon of Zapping”, at which the central topic was HIV prevention, sexuality and AIDS awareness.

On the agenda of these events are short films, humorous exchanges and dialogue. The sessions are led by Solidarité Sida, whose volunteers are often present at public events and concert halls, offering, with a smile, red ribbons and badges that contribute to the financing of its various actions and missions in more than 22 countries.

The third edition of an Afternoon of Zapping, held at the Salle des Variétés, was in partnership with the Monaco Red Cross, the Youth and Sports Education Directorate, Fight Aids Monaco and the Monaco Screening Centre, who were each represented.

The goal is to encourage students to speak k freely about sexuality as well as the human immunodeficiency virus and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.
