Bomeff director Shepherd Mavhudzi told TellZim News that they were planning to incorporate more teams in the future so that men can be more conscious to the need for healthier lifestyle choices.
"We are there to encourage men to come forward and get tested for HIV and Aids so that they can know their status and we also urge them to correctly and consistently use condoms. We also encourage all people to live healthy by abstaining from casual sex and being faithful to their partners," Mavhudzi said
He said Bomeff was planning to form men discussion groups to explore such issues to do with HIV and Aids.sport
