HIV and AIDS
From local meetings to health campaigns, Key Correspondents document community action on HIV and AIDS. KCs will also report announcements about HIV testing and prevention schemes and highlight the successes and failures of existing programmes. The impact traditional healers, shortages of ARVs and expired medication have on the lives of those living with HIV is also reported, as are spikes and declines in HIV prevalence rates. KCs also document what life is like for people living with HIV, many of whom face HIV stigma, and the impact cultural beliefs have on their choices around condom use, circumcision, prevention, treatment and care. KC stories often examine the links between poverty and HIV, as well as the links between maternal health and HIV, told through the lenses of grass roots campaigns and individual stories.
