1. Women's Treatment Literacy Toolkit Launch

SAfAIDS in conjunction with the American Jewish World Service (AJWS) and ActionAid International proudly launches the first ever Women's Treatment Literacy Toolkit, giving practical information on antiretroviral treatment to women, girls and those supporting them.

It is simple, user friendly, and clear and is designed to help its users make informed decisions about HIV/AIDS prevention, care, support and treatment. Illustrated with diagrams and pictures, the toolkit is equally useful for low literacy populations.

The tools include: fact sheets, posters, activity cards, a calendar, a brochure, an audiocassette and lists of additional resource materials. The audiocassette shall support women with low literacy levels and visual impairment, realising their right to ART information.

The toolkit is currently available in English, Shona and Ndebele.
