Kronprinsen demonstrerte kondom-bruk

Someone please explain this one to me....

VG Nett - Helse : Kronprinsen demonstrerte kondom-bruk

Kronprinsen demonstrerte kondom-bruk

KAMBODSJA (VG Nett) Kronprins Haakon tok utfordringen da en kvinne i salen ba ham demonstrere hvordan man trer p en kondom.

Kronprins Haakon er i Kambodsja som goodwill-ambassadr for FN. Torsdag beskte han HIV-positive og AIDS-syke kvinner som er med p et prosjekt i Wat Preh Dak.

- Det er imponerende se hvordan folk her str fram og snakker offentlig om hiv/aids. Det man kan snakke om, blir ikke s truende, sa kronprinsen i en spontan tale etter mtet utenfor tempelet, melder NTB.

Han sa at han var blitt svrt inspirert av mtet, og at han ville ta med seg erfaringen hjem til Norge.

Til de unge lederne sa han at det hadde vrt inspirerende mte unge og entusiastiske mennesker som arbeider for endringer til det bedre. Han kritiserte spesielt stigmatiseringen av hiv/aids-smittede.

- Stigmatisering er et av de vanskeligste delene av problemet, men det er ingen skam ha fatt hiv/aids. Alle mennesker har like stor verdi, sa han.

Ble utfordret

Under mtet fortalte kvinnene litt om de utbredte HIV- og AIDS-problemene i Kambodsja. Blant annet blir bruk av kondom sett p som flaut, noe som gjr at mange dropper det. Konsekvensen er at mange blir HIV-smittet.

HIV-positive Yann Touch viste forsamlingen hvordan man trer en kondom p en trepenis.

Etterp reiste en annen dame i salen seg og spurte om ikke kronprins Haakon kunne vise hvordan man trer p en kondom i Norge.

Kronprinsen tok utfordringen. Han gikk smilende frem og fikk utdelt en kondom, som han deretter tredde p tre-penisen.

- Et eksempel

Etterp hstet Haakon stor applaus, og ble holdt fram som et eksempel av generalsekretren i det kambodsjanske forbundet for hiv/aids-syke, doktor Tia Phaella.

- Nr selv en kronprins fra Norge kan snakke pent om aids, er det ingen grunn for oss her til diskriminere dem som er syke, sa han til NTB.

Kronprinsen kom til Kambodsjas hovedstad Phnom Penh mandag kveld. I dag reiser han hjem til Norge.

What is there to explain :) Haakon shows, that hes a modern man and crown prince and that hes really engaged and interested in the topic HIV and AIDS, and that hes not just talking about it or greeting people in Norway, who work for organisations.

The article basically says, that Haakon has visited an organisation, which fights against HIV/AIDS. HIV-infected women were deeply impressed by Haakons words (he said, that he was inspired by the meeting and will take these experiences home, further he has talked about the discrimination, that people, who suffer from HIV/AIDS have to go through...) and by his demonstration...he has shown how to use a condom.
IMO its obvious that this was a little bit embarrassing for him, but therefore its even braver, that he did it!

First there was a demonstration by one of the local workers how to put a condom on a wooden penis, and then one of the women in the audience asked Haakon how one does it in Norway... and he took the challenge, and did it.

One of the local workers, or someone, then said that how could putting a condom being shameful, as it's viewed in Cambodia, when the Crown Prince of Norway can be on stage and talk about it, and actually show them how to put it on.

AIDS is a serious business and the fact that Haakon had enough courage to demonstrate proper condom use is no laughing matter either. I say Bravo to Haakon.

What's there to explain???? uhm, I don't speak Norwegian so that's why I asked. Of the little I do understand I sort of figured it was UN Aids related issues.

Excellent work Haakon!!!! I'm so proud of him, that was amazing. He is such an inspiration to me.

That's great, I mean really. I think this is one of the things that has impressed me most about him. I've always had such great respect for him but this shows him as a modern royal & someome who is willing to do what needs to be done even if it's a bit uncumfy.

Sorry, I wasnt sure if youve meant the meaning of Haakons engagement/work or if there were "linguistic barriers"...obviously it was the second one :)
