Global Activism: Combatting HIV in Togo

SHARE Global Activism: Combatting HIV in Togo

On today's Global Activism, we talk to Beth Skorochod, who works on HIV prevention for Population Services International (PSI).

The organization runs a host of health programs around the globe. These include an HIV prevention project in Togo that targets men who have sex with men. The program uses peer to peer education to encourage men to use condoms and get tested. The Togolese government invited PSI into the country despite the fact that it is illegal for men to have sex with men.  Beth tells Worldview how things have been going.
