Actress, singer and UNAIDS supporter Zendaya, who travelled to South Africa last year to raise awareness about HIV among young people.
She discusses her work in a new interview with glamourmag. “AIDS can affect everyone… If I can make it cool for young people to buy a certain handbag, maybe I can make it cool to be safe, protect yourself, get tested—to love yourself.”
This week UNAIDS called for 20 billion condoms by 2020.
Every day, more than one million people acquire a sexually transmitted infection (STI) and every year there are estimated to be around 80 million unintended pregnancies. Condoms are proven to be 98% effective in preventing STIs and HIV. In addition, male and female condoms prevent unintended pregnancies when used correctly and consistently.
