Abstract:

This leaflet aims to support you, as a traditional leader, to share correct information on sexuality with other leaders and members of your community,
in order to promote a culture of tolerance and acceptance. This will also help to reduce the spread of HIV, stigma and discrimination.

Because of your important and powerful role in your community, you have a responsibility to increase knowledge and understanding among your people, to improve their health and happiness. Improving health and happiness means including
everyone in the community - especially on sexual and reproductive health and rights. HIV has taught us as communities that if one of us is at risk, then
we all are. It has also shown us that stigma and discrimination exposes us all to risk.

“In response to HIV, no one should be left out.”
