The Guaitiao Project Educates Local Youth on STI Prevention

By Elizabeth Roldan, Administrative Assistant 

Throughout the month of July, the Guaitiao Project prevention team participated in various community outreach events including visits to different beaches, night activities in various parts of the island, and outreach in the municipality of Cidra where they managed to impact more than 200 young adults! The main objective was to impact young people in the places that they frequent to discuss the importance of prevention as well as the correct and regular use of condoms as a method of preventing Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) such as the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) as well as unwanted pregnancies.
