It is widely recognized that sport can be used as a successful approach to address health promotion, inclusive approach for all, mobilizing more youth and civil society around positive values and healthy behaviors.

Health education and promotion of healthy behaviour, with focus on prevention of unwanted teenage pregnancies, including HIV and other STI prevention for youth was the aim of organizing Love Plus Street Ball 2013, on 18th of May.

For the fourth time, Love Plus Street ball brought together more than 1500 young people from all over the Kosovo. This year, interest for participation was very high and 24 teams took place in the competition.

The best player of the event and the winning team were awarded with full, respectively partial scholarships from “Universum” College, while the prices for the second place, digital cameras, and for the third place, 500 GB external Hard Discs, were sponsored by UNFPA.

Also, they distributed 1500 copies of IEC materials and 6,500 Love Plus condoms.
