NHARCON Photo competition 2018


A photo contest on prevention and awareness was organized by SAA during National HIV& AIDS Research Conference (NHARCON) 2018. This was part of SAA activities to empower, promote and encourage youth to engage in safe sex practices. We received a total of 30 entries. After the shortlisting process 12 participants were selected to progress to the final stage. The criteria for selecting the final winner was made up of three components. After a rigorous selection process, Miss Micheala Wekem emerged the winner. The criteria included: the photo should have more than one tool for protection against HIV/AIDS and STIs, positive body language and overall decent appearance. Michaela met the above criteria and thus was selected the winner. Her prize is a full scholarship to attend ICASA 2019 Rwanda.
