Etre chez soi, c'est le meilleur remède, Zimbabwe

This booklet is one of an ongoing series prepared during the UNESCO-DANIDA training workshops to produce gender-sensitive materials for HIV/AIDS prevention for southern African countries. The gender theme that is integrated into this post-literacy material allows for the recognition of local conditions, attitudes, values, beliefs, dreams and aspirations. This booklet address a wide-range of issues normally not included in materials for HIV/AIDS such as the secondary status of girls and women in the family, wife inheritance, traditional medicinal practices, superstitions, home-based care and living positively with HIV/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/AIDS. It also takes into consideration, readers with limited literacy skills. The story is about home based care, comfort and love for people living with HIV/AIDS.
