Cheba is the provincial director of 139 registered madrassas (Islamic schools), where pupils start learning about HIV/AIDS as early as six years of age. He raises awareness about the disease, and sees mosques as the perfect place for the dissemination of such knowledge. HIV/AIDS affects roughly 15 percent of the adult population of Mozambique.
