Saturday, December 1 saw the commemoration of World AIDS Day around the globe. The fight to end AIDS continues, and Right To Play is using play to educate children in affected regions around the globe.

Can a simple game help prevent HIV/AIDS?
Yes it can.
Through play, we’re teaching children important lessons about HIV/AIDS that help guide their behaviours and their decision-making. Young people participating in Right To Play programs are not only learning about how HIV/AIDS is spread and how to prevent it, they’re also sharing their knowledge about the disease, helping to educate their communities and fight the stigmas that give it power.
