Un Sorcier ou malade? Mali

This booklet is one of a series prepared during the UNESCO-DANIDA training workshops to produce gender-sensitive materials for HIV and AIDS prevention for Southern African countries. The gender theme that is integrated into this post-literacy materials allows for the recognition of local conditions, attitudes, values, beliefs, dreams and aspirations.This booklet addresses a wider-range of issues normally not incuded in materials for HIV and AIDS, such as the secondary status of girls and women in the family, wife inheritance, traditional medicinal practices, supersitions, home-based care and living positively with HIV and AIDS. The series aims at providing materials that can help readers: women, men, young and old, change their attitudes, which, in turn will bring about positive changes in their behaviour and urge them to raise issues and seek answers to questions concerning their risk of contracting HIV and AIDS. It also takes into consideration, readers with limited literacy skills.This story is about the importance of information-sharing on serious issues such as HIV and AIDS, etc and with particular emphasis on the role and impact of education.
