Due to the increase of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), Boys to Men Club is conducting awareness campaigns in the streets of Chitungwiza.

Boys to Men Club representative, Jason Kwaramba said that they thought it wise to conduct the campaigns since many youths are now back from school.

The group was formed in 2005 with the main aim to educate fellow youths about diseases, and empowerment.

Seeing the creative way the campaign was conducted the passersby who paid attention appreciated the initiative and the idea since many people are being affected.

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) also referred to as STDs and venereal diseases (VDs), are infections that are commonly spread by sex or genital contact.

The most common ones include chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital and anal warts, hepatitis b, genital herpes, syphilis, HIV/AIDS and pubic lice.
