WORLD AIDS DAY, 2018
1st December 2018 (Saturday)
Today, scientific advances have been made in HIV treatment, there are laws to protect people living with HIV and we understand so much more about the condition than 3 decades ago.
World AIDS Day is held on the 1st December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day, held for the first time in 1988.
Years down the line we as civil society actors see this 3oth anniversary as other avenues to redouble our efforts in making more inroads and in doing so more and more lives at stake will be saved. Let’s celebrate while pursuing agendas and knowing well that World AIDS Day is important because it reminds the public and Government that HIV has not gone away – there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education globally.
Knowing our status matters most, I know my status, and do you know yours?, the 2018 global theme is apt “KNOW YOUR STATUS”. Here in Ghana the official national celebration will take place in the Volta Region-1st December, 2018-Saturday with other several civil society actors celebrating it at every corner of Ghana.

It is estimated that 49% of people living with HIV and tuberculosis are unaware of their infections and are therefore not receiving care.
At the end of 2017, US$ 21.3 billion was available for the AIDS response in low- and middle-income countries.

Time to improve upon the kills, knowledge and the behaviors of the young one’s.
Question: what is you plan for the development of children in your locality?
In life, there are returns to modeling and gift of chances to positive child developments. Children must live in a conducive environment to enhance proper growth and development. Every environment considered conducive is as a result of the people living in it.
This means, It is in our hands to pull our African children who have not got access to amenities that enlighten and ensure growth and development out from the darkest environment into the light of seen.
In this regard, we will like to share with you the possible behavioral and educational facilities provided by HAYC to enhance responsible behavioral changes and skills development in the children of Saboba in Ghana.
The term ‘behaviour guidance’ is used to reflect current thinking about the most positive and effective ways to help children gain understanding and learn skills that will help them to manage their own behaviour.
Corporal punishment and unreasonable discipline are not permitted in education and care services, not only because the child may be physically harmed, but also because it nearly always has detrimental effects on the child’s self-esteem and feelings of security and belonging.
We have provided many facilities and educational program to develop the basic students in Saboba District at Health-Aid. To know more about us please contact health-aid.org
We love children and give them the fantastic childhood life and training. We enjoy being with them and making them feel loved and secure. Hence, we've established many educational and recreational activities and conditions for children in Saboba District to benefit from Monday-Saturday at Health-Aid.
To built a good and strong generation, we start now! We are happy to help and share!
We are together now!
We share all the joy, responsibilities and knowledge in various aspect of life here with the lovely, kind and poor children of Saboba in Ghana. This year, our mission name is "Action 22b".

IMPACT OF OPEN DEFECATION ON NUTRITION
Open defecation aids the spread of communicable diseases such as cholera, dysentery, etc. F***l matter are known to contain many kinds of pathogens including but not limited to protozoa, viruses and worm larvae. These pathogens can be transferred to healthy hosts and there are several ways that this happen. For instance, the pathogens can be passed on to food when hands are not washed properly after defecation. The pathogens can also be picked from the soil by crawling children and introduced into the mouth. The most likely to occur is when f***l matter is washed by running water into a water body that serve as a drinking water source to people, thereby exposing the users to harmful pathogens. Once, the pathogens enter the host, they attach themselves to the walls of the intestines. The intestines in a state of defense, expel a lot of water which leads to diarrhea. As a result, nutrients that are important for heathy growth leave the body without being assimilated into the walls of the intestine. A repetition of this process cause the structure and nature of the wall to change, making it difficult for anything to be absorbed by the intestines, including the nutrients. At a long run, the host becomes malnourished or dies due to lack of essential nutrients and excessive loss of fluids.
