AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) is a terrible disease that affects the immune system. It is caused by HIV (the human immunodeficiency virus). Although there are now treatments available that can slow down the progression of the disease, there is still no known cure for AIDS. Treatment can also be difficult to access in some parts of the world, which is why it is so important to prevent HIV infections to begin with.
This is why Games.co.za approached loveLife.org.za, the largest national Aids prevention initiative for young people in South Africa. Through its outreach programmes and multi-media campaigns, loveLife is reaching out to youth to motivate them to Make their Move and lead healthy lives for HIV-free futures. With a better future and real opportunities in reach, people are less likely to put themselves at risk of getting the virus. That's what loveLife is all about!
HIV/AIDS Awareness Games
One important way to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS is to be aware of the disease and how it can be transmitted. This is how we want to chip in: it's important for people to know how to stay safe, and that is what the games collected on this page are all about. Answer questions about HIV/AIDS to test your knowledge about the disease, and help the characters make the right decisions to stay healthy and happy.
