Soccer Players Kick Out HIV

Soccer players in Swaziland are not just kicking the ball, they are playing to kick out the HIV epidemic

Soccer players in Swaziland are not just kicking the ball, they are playing to kick out the HIV epidemic.

The Knock Out Challenge is a soccer tournament organised by the Baphalali Swaziland Red Cross Society (BSRCS) to help combat HIV in Swaziland, which has the highest rate of the deadly epidemic in the world.

26.5 percent of Swaziland’s population is living with HIV/AIDS, the stigma of living with HIV often results in citizens not getting tested for HIV/AIDS, for fear of being socially ostracised by their communities.
