Each December, UNICEF?s International Children?s Day of Broadcasting involves young people worldwide in media programming and production, giving them a chance to express their opinions on major issues and develop new skills. Here is one in a series of stories about youth media.
TBILISI, Georgia, 14 November 2006 ? Despite a large global increase in HIV cases over the past decade, Georgia still has a low HIV prevalence rate.
