He said sporting activities are therefore critical as a platform where children could get the right messages on how they could prevent themselves from contracting HIV, a virus that causes AIDS.

LICO organized sporting activities involving 14 schools falling under the jurisdiction of T/A Mwankhunikira in Rumphi district. The organization took advantage of these sporting activities such as football and netball matches, high jump, relay race to conduct HIV testing.2016 03 05 bottle raceBottle raceA total of 299 primary school children were tested and 6 found HIV positive.
