ICT WAR ON HIV & AIDS STIGMA

Information

ICT WAR ON HIV & AIDS STIGMA

A platform to share ideas, knowledge and resources on fighting the stigma associated with HIV and AIDS.

Members: 50

The stigma is on you

When you hear someone is sick with AIDS
This gives you a topic for gossip
To be the first one to smear
You are the scandal

When you visit someone sick with AIDS
Just to see how much weight they have lost
To substantiate your innuendos
You are a lightweight

When someone you know has AIDS
You reject them sooner than accept
When with such you do not connect
You are the discard

When you attend funerals
Just to see if the cause of death is disclosed
As you scrutinise the obituary
You are the façade

When you look at the corpse
Just to see if the effects of AIDS are apparent
As you push your way to the front
You are emaciated

When you are called upon
To embrace and aid those with AIDS
Your stance is keeping your distance
Shame on You

When on account of your scorn
Those with HIV and AIDS cannot live openly
Their pain they bear alone
The stigma is on You

Hi Jackie, thank you for creating this group. To increase membership and participation, you are supposed to send out invitations to community members. I am going to send out some to my friends, you can do that.

We have vibrant community members who am sure will gladly join this group, we can send invites to them too.

Also, there is not yet any on going discussion. Once people join, which am sure they will, they need some thing to keep them going.

I am here to help just in case you need me to; on anything.

Hi all, in my country Uganda, almost every one is affected by Hiv aids. It was so bad in the 80s and 90s when so many families were loosing a lot of people to the disease.

The government decided to run a campaign which has brought about good changes in the last decade.

I believe as people in the ICT world, there is a big role we can play. I shared a blog i.e. telecentrecommunity.ning.com/profiles/blogs/lets-help-fight-hiv-aids and it some how portrays how we can do this.

Thank you,

Sandra

Dear Jackie,
Alex Okwaput is my name and I am a teacher. I have been working with a digital sexual reproductive curriculum 'The world Starts With Me' which can be viewed at www.theworldstart.org . We are presently adapting the curriculum to be used by children infected by birth with HIV. To cut the long story short. I am very interested in innovative ways that ICTs can be used to fight HIV&AIDS. I am very happy that this discussion has come up and I will be happy to share some of my experiences in the discussion forum
Regards,
Alex

Hi Sandra, Jackie..... and others,
It is a an inspiring group to join on how we can mitigate the scourge of HIV/Aids through ICT4D. In this direction, Telecenters have a big role to play. The questions here are how?
My comments on the how are:
1. Awareness information resources on HIV/Aids through CDs and Telecenter video Shows at local communities. The main target can be the youth and school going youths.

2. Telecenters creating partnerships with service providers such as USAID Aids programmes and government through they can deliver information and services on their activities to local communities through telecenters.

3. Strengthening telecenter networks through consistent online discussions can be discussed.

I hope we can explore more areas of interventions on how Telecenters can get more involved or declared war on HIV/Aids.

Thanks
