The USA provides training on HIV/AIDS Awareness & Prevention Program to F-FDTL

On Wednesday June 21st, the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense HIV/AIDS Awareness & Prevention Program (DHAPP) with assistance with Church World Services, held a three-day workshop for 13 selected F-FDTL members to be new facilitators regarding health issues such as HIV/AIDS prevention, reproductive health, and sexually transmitted diseases. This training will equip new facilitators with the knowledge they need to host education sessions in the future that will benefit both their fellow service members and the community.  The DHAPP has partnered with Church World Services and the F-FDTL to address HIV/AIDS awareness and education in Timor-Leste since 2015.
