THIRTY-FOUR youths from 13 regional countries were part of a Regional Youth Training of Trainers on Transformational Leadership Development Workshop.

The five-day workshop at the Pacific Theological College in Nasese was funded by United Nations AIDS and Pacific Leadership Program and its main purpose was to strengthen leadership capacity to lead and contribute to advocacy on HIV/AIDS services in Pacific island countries.

Trainer Dr Ehab El Kharrat said the epidemic was not concentrated but there were indications sexually transmitted infections were widespread in the Pacific.

Participant Christina Ora said such an initiative could help tackle the stigma and ensure young people's access to lifesaving information on HIV/AIDS prevention.

Fellow participant Tatabo Karereiti of Kiribati said the workshop was helpful.

"I will go and teach my community what I have learnt here," he said.
