Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are a key reproductive and public health concern, especially in the era of HIV/AIDS. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that approximately 448 million infections occur worldwide, and about 47 % of them are among women. 

According with data from AIDS Indicator Survey of 2011 39% of young women age 15-24 have comprehensive knowledge about HIV and AIDS, with knowledge increasing slightly with age. Young people in urban areas are more likely than rural youth to have comprehensive knowledge about HIV and AIDS. The proportion with comprehensive knowledge increases steadily with education. For these reason the active involvement of people in education on HIV and other STI is of pivotal relevance. 

Moreover, notwithstanding there has been an increase in the level of comprehensive knowledge about HIV among Ugandan youth, with the proportion of young women with comprehensive knowledge increasing from 30% in 2004-05 to 32% in 2006 and to 39% in 2011, there is still a relevant part of the women in the community, in particular young women, without any significant information regarding modality of transmission and modes of prevention. 

Pe atye kena” would improve Ugandan women knowledge on the prevention of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections through periodic meetings during which medical and support personnel share with participant women many prevention aspects
