North Star Alliance
The North Star Alliance is a health organization that focuses on the health of African truck drivers. Truck drivers are an at-risk group for HIV as being away from home and family can result in risky sexual behavior, like having sex with sex workers, who are also at risk for HIV.
The North Star Alliance is setting up a network of Roadside Wellness Centers to address the health needs of drivers along some of Africa´s major international highways.
I found these postcards on a recent trip in South Africa.
