HIV/Aids Campaign in Merrueshi

In support of World AIDS day, Merrueshi Village Clinic sponsored a HIV/Aids awareness event on December 1, 2011. The event is celebrated worldwide on December 1st of every year. The campaign attracted nearly 200 participants from Merrueshi and neighboring villages. The locals came for HIV/ Aids education, testing, and counseling. The campaign helped us put our faces to HIV/AIDS and reduce the stigma around HIV. Several people from Merrueshi have been either lost or are living with HIV.

The meeting was presided over by our nurses and government officials from the Ministry of Health in Kajiado District. Local chiefs and elders from neighboring villages attended the event in large numbers.

Maasai Association printed and donated t-shirts with the following message:
Front- “Getting to zero, zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination, zero AIDS related deaths.” This was a national slogan for 2011 AIDS campaign.

Our belief

The development and survival of the Maasai people is a matter of grave concern to us. We strongly believe that we can bring sustainable socio-economic development to the Maasai region, while preserving our cultural heritage.


Comment of the year

Maasai is the correct spelling not Masai. Masai with one 'A' is incorrect. In the future please spell Maasai with double AA. We prefer Maasai, not Masai. The title Maasai derives from the word Maa. Maa-sai means my people.
