One of the key objectives of SAfAIDS’ Asikhulume, Ngatitaure, Let’s Talk programme is to prepare young people for their engagement role by increasing their understanding and articulation of the basic tenets of the Constitution, particularly those relating to health, education and social services.

SAfAIDS Swaziland participated in a sensitisation campaign at Mahamba border gate in the Shiselweni region on December 22nd 2017, to welcome migrant workers home for the festive season. The activity was organised by the Ministry of Health working in close collaboration with the National TB control Program (NTCP) and country partners working on TB and HIV, especially those working with migrant workers. The goal of the sensitisation campaign was to educate migrant workers on health services available on their return home, to promote linkages to care and improve adherence to treatment.
