GAD Coordinator:

"We made our choice of villages because it has the highest population thus we hope to reach 1000 plus personnes to talk about HIV. I have boite a' image (4) and everyone will have notebooks to keep a count of people and to write down any difficult questions that may need to be answered by the doctor. The laboratory technicians plan to test 200 with the materials donated by C.I.P.E.C. We have chosen a central point actually CEG1 to set up a testing table and have students and teachers talk about abstinence-finish school, why test-to know results of course and to discuss behavior change. Results are confidential and the lab. techs. have a "fiche de conseil depistage" to keep track of testing."

I like the idea of testing. I would like to know more about how the villages are chosen, the marketing plan, what groups will be targeted, and who will do the sensibilisation. Since this is to take place soon, I think we can approve it once she answers questions, but normally I’d ask her to resubmit.

GAD Finance: I read Liz’s most recent E-mail. Recommend funding.
GAD Specialist: recommend funding.
