Cover Drive joins HIV fight

Cover Drive

Local quartet Cover Drive is teaming up with the National HIV/AIDS Commission in observance of AIDS Awareness Week this year, which runs from December 1 to 7.

The group has recorded a series of HIV awareness messages urging Barbadians to make sensible choices to avoid contracting HIV as well as to get tested to know ones’ HIV status.

The messages will soon be available on the Commission’s Facebook page, ( website and Youtube page (NHACBarbados) in the first instance, as part of a social media blitz.

Cover Drive ignited the UK Charts with their debut single Lick Ya Down and repeated the feat with an equally record topping hit Twilight. The group has amassed views on Youtube surpassing the eight million mark.

Director of the commission, Jacqueline Wiltshire Gay, welcomed Cover Drive’s cooperation in what has been described as “a partnership that should be immensely beneficial to Barbadian youth in particular who have been identified as a key population which is vulnerable to HIV”.

Cover Drive worked with the Behaviour Change Communication Specialists of the commission to deliver the targeted messages.
