Workshops bring African tradition to bear on HIV/AIDS

November 18, 2008 | Posted in: NewsHIV/AIDS

The Ubuntu Institute is holding regional workshops in five countries in Africa during November 2008.

The theme of the workshops is “African traditional religious groups and traditional leaders partnering to fight HIV/AIDS: Fostering innovative socio-cultural interventions in the fight against HIV/AIDS”.

The workshops will bring together traditional and religious leaders, donors, as well as representatives of government and civil society, with a view to creating a platform for otherwise marginalised voices.

Other aims include addressing the socio-cultural factors fuelling the spread of HIV/AIDS, generating possible interventions, and creating a network of visible leadership in the fight against the epidemic.

For dates and area information, please see our calendar.
