More and more traditional healers around the world are working with doctors and health workers.
This relationship helps protect traditional healers.
With knowledge about HIV healers can protect themselves against the virus.
And this relationship is important for HIV prevention and control in communities.
This is just one important way of stopping the spread of HIV.
But there are other ways.
Save sex until you are married.
Or, if you do have sex, protect yourself with a condom.
Do not inject drugs into your body.
Do not touch other peoples’ blood.
Women, if you have HIV, you should not breastfeed your babies.
Breast milk can pass the virus to your baby.
If you believe you have HIV talk to a doctor, a health worker, or a traditional healer who has HIV training.
Educate yourself about HIV and then educate other people around you.
The more we work together, the better chance we have to fight the spread of HIV.
