UNESCO in partnership with Ministry of Education and with financial support from the Government of the Republic of Azerbaijan, community and Civil society organizations implemented a two year Health Literacy and Behaviour Change practices among Adolescent Girls pilot project from September 2014-September 2017 in 41 schools. Health literacy materials were evaluated and approved by Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development for use in other informal settlements. This explores how a young girl is stigmatised and isolated as a result of her parents dying of HIV and AIDS, and the misinformation surrounding the disease. Two friends, one a bit stronger than the other, finally overcome their fears to go to see the young girl, and they end up giving her moral as well as material support. The intention of the stories/scripts is to show young people that they can change things and that they can act so that they are not portrayed as passive victims with no hope. Action is not confined to school, but moves into the community as well. The scripts are designed such that they can be put on the radio as a broadcast as well as acted out as a play.
