"I talked to my kids about sex and HIV." Deputy Minister Pohamba Shifeta
"Speak to your children about sex, HIV and AIDS. It could save their lives.
'I do not only have the national responsibility as a deputy minister - I also have the one of being a parent. I tell my children about HIV & AIDS and how to protect themselves and when they have something to discuss - they come to me.' - Pohamba Shifeta -
Speaking to children about sex, HIV and AIDS might not always be easy. But, the more your children know about the risks and responsibilities that come with sexual relationships, the better they will be able to handle them.
It has been shown that those teenagers who have information about sex, HIV and AIDS are more likely to delay sexual activity or to use condoms.
As a parent, you have the chance to give your kids all the information they need to stay safe.
If you want to know more about how to speak to your children about sex, HIV and AIDS, ask your Regional AIDS Coordinator or primary school teacher for 'Let's Talk - A guide for parents and caregivers'.
Be your own hero. Take control"
