Gender and HIV/AIDS

This script looks at the situation of three women who are facing problems related to HIV and AIDS. The effects of the virus and disease on the family can be many. If men are working away from home, women cannot work on the farm while looking after sick children; incomes and food supply may drop. The script explores the question: who faces the biggest share of problems that HIV and AIDS bring to the home, women or men?

Has anyone in your listening area found effective and creative solutions to HIV andAIDS-associated problems? You can adapt this script to your local needs by interviewing people in your listening audience who are working on these issues and hearing about their problems and solutions.
