The use of potential social structures and entities for HIV prevention education: The role of Queen mothers in Ghana
Having used varied modes of education to tackle the HIV problem, it was decided to appeal to the queen-mothers at their regional council and have a look on their capacity in pulling people along to pursue things of social value and effect, and use it also in promoting the health status of their people for public good and governance. The best way to promote sexual and reproductive health among young people and to raise awareness of HIV is to make information and services available as part of a wider programme that addresses their social needs and help empower them to make healthy choices.
