(Prevention and Awareness on HIV/AIDS with HIV Testing)
SCORA CIMSA FK UNRI
CIMSA UNRI successfully held WAD (World AIDS Day) with the name: PROVING (Prevention and Awareness on HIV/AIDS with HIV Testing) on Sunday 4th December 2022 from 07.00 a.m to 09.30 a.m. This activity was held on Car Free Day Sudirman, Pekanbaru. We carried out this activity for more than 25 members of CIMSA UNRI. This activity cooperates with PERDOSKI and BKKBN.
WAD is an activity of SCORA to commemorate World AIDS Day, aims to increase our knowledge and awareness about HIV/AIDS, how the virus is transmitted, and how to prevent the virus because there are still many people who still misunderstand the transmission of the virus.
Before the activity WAD 2022 being held, CIMSA UNRI held pre-activity for all of OC. This training was conducted on Sunday, 27th November 2022 at 01.00 p.m until 03.00 p.m via Zoom Meeting and was attended by the entire organizing committees (OC). The material was attended by one of the PETRA from CIMSA UNRI, namely Salsa Wiratama from SCORA. The training also has a pre-test and post-test to know OC’s knowledge about the topic that had been discussed.
On the night before the main event, we uploaded a twibbon about the event we were going to do. Twibbon was being uploaded by all of OC from the 2022 WAD event on instagram. We uploaded Twibbon at 7 simultaneously. In the twibbon, there was an inscription name of the event and also the activities that will be carried out at the event.
Now the main event of WAD activity. This activity was opened with gymnastics. This gymnastic was led by gymnastics instructors from PERDOSKI and BKKBN. After doing gymnastics, we conducted a rapid test for HIV to willing CFD visitors. This test was done by the VCT (Voluntary Counselling and Testing) Team because medical students do not yet have the competence to conduct rapid test for HIV. In addition to doing the VIV test, we (OC) also provided education to CFD visitors about HIV/AIDS. There are more than 30 people that we educated. This activity ended with photo with the OC.
That was all the activities at the WAD 2022. We hope this activity can be even better in the next year.
