Discrimination on the basis of race, religion, culture, gender, age, ability and language, as well as issues such as xenophobia and other forms of discrimination, are addressed. This focus area also deals with social relationships and other human rights and responsibilities. It is important for learners to be politically literate, that is, to know and understand democratic processes.
The importance of volunteerism, social service and involvement in a democratic society are emphasised, and the causes, consequences and prevention of pervasive social ills, such as all forms of violence and abuse, are addressed. Particular attention is paid to social and environmental issues (including HIV and AIDS). Knowledge of diverse religions will contribute to the development of responsible citizenship and social justice.

Why is it important for Teenagers to investigate and be knowledgeable about risky behaviour
Why is it important for Teenagers to investigate and be knowledgeable about risky behaviour: Life Orientation.
Four Reasons why
Teenagers need to investigate and be knowledgeable about risky behaviour as this helps them understand the consequences of their decisions and hopefully help them make better choices.
Teenagers need to investigate and be knowledgeable about risky behaviour because learning more about high-risk behaviour will help them consider lower-risk alternatives instead.
Teenagers need to investigate and be knowledgeable about risky behaviour because risk behavior is a lifestyle activity that puts a person at increased risk of suffering particular conditions.
Some teenagers might not even have stable families, thus teenagers themselves need to investigate and eventually become knowledgeable about risky behaviour.
Distinguish between HIV and AIDS
Distinguish between HIV and AIDS: Life Orientation Term 3 Notes. According to Aids Map, the terms HIV and AIDS are used interchangeably, leading to confusion about their differences. Here, we’ll discuss the definition and differences of both terms.
HIV stands for ‘human immunodeficiency virus’. HIV belongs to a group of viruses called retroviruses. HIV attacks white blood cells within the immune system. These cells will stay infected for the rest of their lives. If untreated, HIV will develop into AIDS.
AIDS stands for ‘acquired immune deficiency syndrome’. (It’s sometimes referred to as ‘late stage HIV’ or ‘advanced HIV disease’.) It is an umbrella term for the illnesses that occur due to having untreated HIV infection for several years, by which point the immune system is severely damaged and unable to fight off infections. The illnesses and symptoms will vary for each person that has AIDS, but may include life-threatening infections and cancers.
Distinguishing between HIV and AIDS
Every person who has AIDS has HIV, but not every person with HIV will develop AIDS. Because there are now lots of treatment options available for people living with HIV, far fewer people are developing AIDS. Often, those that do develop AIDS are people who have not been tested for HIV and have never taken treatment. Once started on HIV treatment, death due to AIDS can be prevented.
