Reporting AIDS : an analysis of media environments in southern Africa


Expand view

This report shares the combined findings of five studies carried out by the Panos London AIDS Programme with the support of Johns Hopkins University. The studies took place in Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe: countries that, while having high HIV prevalence in common, provide diverse contexts in terms of their media environment, governance, culture and national response to HIV/AIDS. The studies explore some of the issues and tensions involved in the relationship between the media and HIV/AIDS, aiming to identify how the media could better fulfil a potential role in responding to the epidemic, for example by 'moving beyond awareness-raising' and acting as a channel to encourage individual and social change, providing a forum for debate and holding decision-makers to account
