The HIV/AIDS DVD is our general overview lesson on this important subject. It informs the viewer of the seriousness of the HIV virus and the ways in which it is spread. Although it is incurable, it is important to stop the spread of HIV through education and prevention. The viewer is shown ways of doing this, such as the use of contraception and the sterilising of razors and syringes. The DVD helps to break down some of the common misconceptions about HIV and AIDS, in particular how it can and cannot be passed on. One of the points the viewer is taught is the importance of informing their children about HIV and AIDS. Children are just as much at risk as adults, especially unborn babies, who can contract the virus from their mothers. Education and information are vital in stopping the spread of this very serious disease.
