Booza Brain

Booza Brain

Hey we all like a good party but HIV likes a good booza party too.  When we drink too much alcohol we act differently as to if we were sober. When we have a few too many we are more likely to make decisions that put our lives at risk like driving a car or having sex.

People who drink too much are likely to have more sexual partners, likely to have a one night stand, less like likely to use condoms and more likely to be exposed to HIV.

Getting drunk may place us at a much higher risk for sexual abuse or rape. Our normal protective instincts are clouded and our judgement in sizing up a situation and reacting quickly to danger signals is impaired by the alcohol.

Scrutinize and eliminate the babelaas surprise - less is more.

About Scrutinize

Scrutinize is a public health campaign which encourages the Youth to "scrutinize" or understand their risk of HIV infection in relation to multiple concurrent partners, correct and consistent condom use, transactional sex (sex for money), intergenerational sex (sugar daddies) and alcohol use.

Scrutinize is a national campaign being undertaken by the JHU Program in South Africa and funded by USAID/PEPFAR.
