The West Africa Aids Foundation (WAAF), is calling on the Ghana Education Service (GES), to include sex education in the basic school curricular.

This, the foundation says, will help in the fight against HIV/AIDS as well as other communicable diseases.

Speaking at the World Aids Day Celebration in Accra, Ghanaian Actor Adjetey Annan, cautioned the youth to be wary of the choices they make in their sex life.

The West Africa Aids Foundation WAAF was set up 18 years ago in Ghana, to help in the battle against HIV and AIDS, Tuberculosis among others and mitigate their effects on communities, by providing care and support.

Ghanaian Actor Adjetey Annan entreated the youth to know their HIV status and also spread the message about the pandemic.

A member of WAAF, Akua Serwaa-Sefa, called on Ghanaians to focus on preventive measures and intensify sex education at the basic level.

A section of the participants said they were scared to know their status. A five minutes candle-light night vigil was held to pray for the lost souls.
