1-4-1 Board Game, for health education, using cartoon figures engaged in socially helpful and socially harmful behaviour, relating to issues involving AIDS and HIV, with dice, background notes and rules in English, French, Portuguese, Spanish and Swahili, by TALC ( Teaching Aids at Low Cost), St. Albans, England, 1992
The aim of this game is to encourage young people to talk and learn about sexual health in an engaging way. Playing games is a way to allow people to talk openly about topics such as sexual health, which some may find difficult or embarrassing. Game playing also allows people to get involved regardless of how well they can read or write.
Players are asked questions such as “What should you do if you know some-one who has AIDS?” The board shows cartoon figures acting both with kindness and with hatred, two typical but opposite responses to sexually transmitted infections.
The game is made by TALC (Teaching Aids at Low Costs), founded in 1965 by Professor David Morley to distribute teaching aids to improve health care worldwide.
