Stratcomm to organise public walk

STRATEGIC Communications Africa Limited (Stratcomm Africa), in partnership with UNAIDS, the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) and the Ghana AIDS Commission (GAC), will tomorrow undertake a public walk and community forum and drama and music on women empowerment and HIV/AIDs prevention and treatment.

It is one of the activities marking the month-long celebration of International Women’s Day in Ghana organised by UNAIDS Ghana and partners.

The walk, which is aimed at drawing public attention to the need to continue efforts to empower women, will begin at 6.30 am from the Osu Police Station in Accra and proceed through the John Evans Atta-Mills High Street and end at Mantse Agbona in James Town, Accra.

Participants in the walk will include women’s associations, human rights advocates, men’s groups, the media, and the general public among others.

At Mantse Agbona, the gathering will be treated to innovative edutainment sketches and musical programmes that communicate the message of the need for empowering women for community advancement and national development.

Stratcomm Africa’s affiliate NGO, Centre for Development and Intercultural Communication (CEDIC), working with one of its youth drama groups, CEDIC Perfect Stars will deliver the event messages through drama and dance.

Ms. Esther Cobbah Chief Executive Officer at Stratcomm Africa said, “Stratcomm Africa is delighted to have this opportunity to employ communication as a tool for empowering women and the public in general” Mr. Girmay Haile, the Director of UNAIDS Ghana said, “Women are key partners in development and empowering them to make positive choices, including choices that protect them from HIV/AIDS infection, is critical.”

The programme also offers opportunities for the public to test for HIV status.
