Various events were organised in Monaco’s schools on Thursday, December 1, to mark World AIDS Day as part of the Info-Sida programme.

For eight years, a high-quality partnership between the Directorate of National Education, Youth and Sports, the Department of Social Affairs and Health and the Lycée Albert 1er, has provided interactive workshops and conferences dedicated to the prevention and the fight against AIDS.

As for the workshops offered to the pupils of the second year, an anonymous and free screening centre with medical and nursing staff provide an interactive course in a round table with a small group of pupils. This approach makes it possible to establish a real dialogue, addressing aspects related to the AIDS virus in all their diversity.

A presentation of current events on the topic HIV-AIDS is also offered to students of the first grade, sensitising them to the evolution of the pandemic, on proposed treatments and also on the need for individual protection.

As a follow-up to World AIDS Day, the Directorate of National Education, Youth and Sports, the Monegasque Red Cross and Fight Aids Monaco will propose on February 9 and 10 a new edition of the “Après-Midis du Zapping “, to which students of the Terminale classes of the Lycée Albert 1er and the 1st of the Lycée Technique et Hôtelier will be invited.

An interactive show, based on prevention, quizzes and television extracts, will provide students with the opportunity to learn and exchange insights about sexuality and AIDS.
