SMART Youth Answers

From November 1st to December 1st SMART Youth will start a series of blogs that present the public with down-to-earth and youth friendly sexual health/ health/ youth based information.

Since World AIDS Day (December 1st) is all about awareness, we figured this would be the best way to get the word out about HIV and AIDS, but also give answers to those questions that have had so many myths created around them.
Even if it is not myths we are dispelling, we're trying to get information out there that youth should get sooner rather than later so that the decisions they make in the future are fully informed.

Have fun getting educated, re-educated, or just reading!

Stay Safe!
