9781450038928: AIDUCATION 20-10 Taking Control Of AIDS

This book is about the life of a district medical officer who worked in Botswana, looking after African patients admitted to the wards with various tropical conditions including HIV infections, TB and AIDS. This is a true life story of an African medical doctor who wanted to prevent new HIV infections and to give better care and support to people living with HIV infections, TB and AIDS. It is a story of an African teaching intervention strategy that was called and labelled "…controversial…radical…shock tactics…alarmist…" and other names by foreign consultants coming to Africa to assess Africa's AIDS Control programmes. The unique teaching strategy was born in 1989 at Livingstone General Hospital in Zambia with very little support. Livingstone is the home of the Victoria Falls and the birth of AIDUCATION 20-10 Taking Control of AIDS.



The book, 'AIDUCATION 20-10 Taking Control of AIDS' is about prevention of new HIV infections and support for people living with AIDS. AIDUCATION 20-10 is about Dr Edwin Mapara's story as a medical doctor in Africa in the 1990s and as a teacher in Europe in 2010

- implementing a teaching strategy that several "Western Consultants" from Europe and America said was not workable

- the several challenges met locally, nationally and internationally

- barriers to teaching about health encountered

- culture, language and communication

- strengths of the teaching strategy

- the growth of the teaching strategy

- sexually transmitted infections

- the A-Z of AIDS

- the A-Z of tuberculosis (TB)

- the teaching strategy now being used in universities in Europe while Africa waits due to recommendations from foreign consultants to wait

- African 'best practice' programmes

- Botswana's success story in controlling HIV infections and AIDS

- the teaching strategy that is now twenty years old and is used to teach in the universities of London (Europe) in 20-10 and not in African universities as advised by "Consultants"



The use of clinical pictures from Teaching-aids at Low Cost (TALC) to raise AIDS awareness in the local communities, outside the healthcare sector, started in the early 1990s as part of the Athlone AIDS Awareness Project in Athlone Hospital, Lobatse, Botswana. The aim was to combat the denial, dismiss the myths and to AIDucate where there was lack of AIDucation. The other goal was to energise and jump start the Lobatse community to drive its own HIV infection prevention initiatives and to own the home-based care and support programmes for people living with and affected by AIDS. The strategy to teach HIV infections and AIDS with pictures (AIDucation) started in 1992 after a group of students from a local school came to Athlone Hospital wanting to see patients living with AIDS, so as to believe that AIDS was real and not an American Ideology to Discourage Sex (AIDS)! The students were not shown the patients on the wards as that would have been unethical, so the next best option was colour pictures of African patients with AIDS. That was the beginning of AIDucation that twenty years later, in 2010, has become part of the AIDS' modules in London universities, used to teach medical doctors, nurses and volunteers going to work in Africa and amongst the Africans, who gave birth to AIDucation.
