ZIMBABWE: The "art" of HIV/AIDS education

[This report does not necessarily reflect the views of the United Nations]

JOHANNESBURG, 7 September (PLUSNEWS) - Zimbabwe's National AIDS Council (NAC) is collaborating with performance artists to increase HIV/AIDS awareness in Bulawayo, the country's second city.

Together with the WOZA Africa Performing Arts and Amazwi Community Arts, NAC says it will use live theatre and music to educate young people on the dangers of HIV infection.

"We realised that some people still do not take HIV/AIDS seriously and we want to show the public that anyone can contract HIV," a local newspaper, The Chronicle, quoted Amazwi director Christopher Mguni as saying.
