More than half of all new HIV/AIDS infections strike
people under the age of 25. Girls are hit harder and younger than
boys, and infant and child death rates have risen sharply. Children
and adolescents are at the centre of the HIV/AIDS crisis, yet they
are the ones who offer the greatest hope for defeating the epidemic.
Many programs offer HIV/AIDS
education, but often the information is not delivered in an
effective manner. Sport offers a unique opportunity to provide

attracts youth, and provides a fun, safe environment where
HIV/AIDS can be openly discussed.
