PrePex and Africa Goal cooperating for HIV Prevention
A lively project creates awareness of HIV prevention and services
across countries in Sub-Saharan Africa
The aptly-named Africa Goal project was originally initiated for the 2006 World Cup games by a group of individuals who saw the potential in using people’s love of soccer for the purpose of addressing HIV issues. Africa Goal harnesses the popularity and unifying power of football by screening live World Cup matches on a massive screen, and using this platform to provide access to life-saving HIV information and services. The project comprised two vehicles and a staff of 10 volunteers. These enterprising individuals drove across Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe between June 12 and July 13, 2014.
