Apart from the “Kyoto” talks there was free distribution of condoms to emphasize  the safe sex strategy amongst the sexually active youth.

According to current reports from public health, 170,000 youth are living with HIV and if no bigger and strategic interventions  are  made the number may increase because youth are still vulnerable to the epidemic.
