Truck Spreads AIDS Prevention Messages along Mali's Main Roads
--------------------------------------------------------------
 
Population Services International's Mali program has used an uncon-
ventional method to reach large groups of migrant populations at risk 
for HIV/AIDS - a 20-ton truck decorated with the signs, logos and 
slogans promoting safe sexual behavior. PSI/Mali's interventions com-
plement the Ministry of Health's efforts to reduce the HIV/AIDS in-
fection rate along the migratory axis by targeting bus and truck 
drivers, their apprentices, roadside vendors, commercial sex workers 
and youth aged 15-24. 
 
The truck has made three tours, spreading HIV/AIDS prevention infor-
mation to an estimated 16,000 people along the migratory axis of 
Mali.
