Organized by Youth House and MTV Staying Alive Foundation (UK), the event aimed to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS prevention and reduce condom stigma among young people.
“Each student sticking a condom upon the 5x10m picture pledges to be open and friendly to condoms in order to prevent HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases,” Nguyen Dac Xuan, head of organizers, explained the meaning of the activity.
At the event, students also put up their school’s tents, took part in music performances and joined a consultation seminar on safe sex.
“The event targets young people as they will be good-will ambassadors who bring the condoms closer to society and remove the social stigma of this kind of protection,” said Dr Tran Sy Minh at Youth House.
