Peren, 15 December (MTNews): Building on the success of its HIV awareness campaign in Dimapur and Kohima, BZ Entertainment, in collaboration with the Nagaland State AIDS Control Society (NSACS), has entered the next phase of its transformative initiative. The dynamic Drama and Film Society have completed a series of 10 Street Plays each in the Dimapur and Kohima districts and recently in the Peren district, making it a total of 30 shows, reaching communities across various locations from December 11th to 13th, 2023.
The Street Plays, strategically performed at key locations, aimed to deepen the understanding of HIV transmission, prevention, testing, and the urgent need to combat stigma and discrimination. BZ Entertainment continues to leverage the power of creative expression to drive positive societal change and contribute to the fight against HIV.
The campaign has already made a significant impact with performances at strategic locations such as Jalukie-B Monday Bazaar, Jalukie Town Taxi Parking, New Jalukie Town, Kipeuzang Bazaar, Peren Town Junction, Jalukie Town Daily Market, Tening SBI Junction, Old Tesen Village, Samziuram Wednesday Bazaar, and Punglwa Village Marketing Shed.
BZ Entertainment’s carefully crafted Street Plays provided vital information on HIV, and following each performance, the NSACS Mobile Integrated Counselling and Testing Centre (MICTC) team offered free blood tests for HIV and counseling services. This integrated approach ensured that the audience not only received crucial information but also had immediate access to support and guidance.
The campaign in Peren further emphasizes BZ Entertainment’s commitment to creating an immersive experience for communities. As BZ Entertainment continues its journey, the Drama and Film Society remains dedicated to using creative expression as a catalyst for positive transformation. The collaboration with NSACS underscores their commitment to making a lasting impact on HIV awareness in Nagaland.
