Fast Car: Travelling Safely around the World is a racing game that helps the game players to learn about HIV and AIDS prevention and takes them on a tour of some of the World's Heritage sites.

The game aims to provide young people with accurate and reliable information about HIV prevention, intending to educate and entertain as well as promoting healthy behaviour. In this game, the player can race on circuits on five continents, and virtually visit some of the UNESCO World Heritage sites.

This resource is part of the project entitled “Development of interactive multimedia tools on HIV and AIDS for youth” aiming to introduce more accurate and youth friendly HIV-preventive information materials in interactive multimedia formats and to fill the gap in the computer games area, particularly in developing educational games, which combine education and entertainment.

It is expected that the computer game will be used to promote dialogue, especially balanced-gender relations, and self-expression as well as present and share science content.

The game is available in English, French and Russian and can be download at:
