Building partnership with community groups; PRISM, the Guinea Family Planning and Health Project. Here is a group of women representatives in Banankoro. Each one is able to reach at least 200 women through their association, or "Seres." According to Health Center Chief Dr. Daf, out of 100 women receiving prenatal care, at least 90 have symptoms of STDs. At their request, they were given an orientation on STD/HIV/AIDS. They urged PRISM to start targeting males as soon as possible.
