It was disclosed in the third annual National Paediatric Conference on Children infected and affected by HIV/Aids at Prime Holdings Conference Centre that the National Aids Control Commission (CNLS) is set to start a parent-child HIV/Aids contract aimed at reducing the prevalence rate among the youth aged between 15 and 17 years.
It was noted that children who are focused and have a vision towards a bright future are least likely to involve themselves in sexual behaviours that could led them to get infected with the virus.
Parents who give children most of what they need could reduce on the prevalence rate among the youth that claims a bigger percentage of the population.
Parents should identify what their children want to become in the future and try to work together towards achieving it.
Parents should not be lazy and fail to mind about what their children will become in future.
Discussing with children the challenges of life and assuring them through written contract that you are ready to help them go through life could reduce the problem of HIV/Aids.
