This is your campaign, so name it!

The Department of Health has initiated the Girls and Young Women Campaign, to empower girls and young women. The campaign is informed by a report that suggests a disproportionate burden of HIV among adolescent girls and young women, between ages 15-24 years, in South Africa.

The Department has since launched a national competition to involve the public in the naming of the Campaign. It seeks to find an appropriate slogan and name of the Campaign, that speaks to the circumstances and information needs of those who stand to benefit from this initiative.

We would like to request your support to spread the word about the competition. We would appreciate it if you could also consider using your Website, Newsletter and Intranet to spread the word among your staff members, provincial counterparts and partners. The tag @HealthZA and the hashtag #commit2dares, should also be included in your communication.

On behalf of the Head of Communication, Mr Popo Maja, we thank you for your cooperation.
