Students briefed on STIs, teen pregnancies

The Brunei Darussalam AIDS Council (BDAIDSCouncil) conducted an HIV awareness programme for students at two schools recently.

The BDAIDSCouncil’s HIV Awareness Programme for Peers and Youth (HAPPY) was attended by 54 students from Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Hajah Saleha Girls Arabic Religious Secondary School and 72 students from Sultan Sharif Ali Secondary School.

During the programme, BDAIDSCouncil Project Coordinator Siti Kailene Jazlan Kashfi shared statistics on sexually transmitted infections and teenage pregnancies.

She said incidents can be curbed through abstinence and avoiding ‘risky behaviours’ that may lead to pregnancies out of wedlock or early marriages. – James Kon
