Oceania Workshop on HIV & AIDS Prevention through sport


An Oceania Workshop on HIV & AIDS Prevention through sport took place from 19 to 21 April in Port Moresby (Papua New Guinea).

Organised by the IOC, in collaboration with the NOC, this regional seminar brought together representatives of 11 NOCs as well as representatives of the United Nations HIV/AIDS programme (UNAIDS) and the Papua New Guinea National Aids Council.

Among the objectives of the seminar: greater awareness among sports leaders about the necessity of more closely and regularly making the link between the sport movement and HIV/AIDS prevention, and the potential use of sports personalities as models for preventative education.
