Kenyan Peer Educators Discuss HIV/AIDS with Powell
--------------------------------------------------

U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell met with youth peer educa-
tors from Population Services International (PSI) and other pro-
grams while in Nairobi to attend the signing of the Sudan Peace
Accord. Ten participants from PSI/Kenya's abstinence program and
from their advocacy program for young HIV-positive people spoke
with the Secretary about how young Kenyans are coping with
HIV/AIDS. PSI/Kenya participants told Secretary Powell about PSI
outreach programs, which deal with subjects such as stigma,
cross generational sex and delayed sexual debut, held in the
slums, schools, community churches and a new initiative to work
within mosques.
