Speak your world. Citizen journalists reporting on HIV, AIDS and TB

The International HIV/AIDS Alliance, with technical support from AIDSPortal is supporting a citizen journalism programme whereby civil society members with an interest in reporting on HIV, AIDS and TB issues that affect their communities are ‘speaking their world’. These volunteer writers have been posting their stories on www.HealthDev.net. AIDSPortal and the Alliance will be regularly highlighting their hard work on the AIDSPortal blog and in the monthly Global/Eastern Africa/Southern Africa Newsletters.

KC profiles and highlights of their work can be found below.

Africa:
Henry Neondo was enlisted as a Key Correspondent during the ICASA conference held in Nairobi, Kenya, in 2003. Realising a lot of issues surrounding HIV, AIDS and TB go unreported in the mainstream press, Henry was able to write about these for Healthdev.net and says he is constantly impressed by the site’s depth of coverage.

Recent work by Henry: Africa must draw lessons from the Thai Vaccine trial results - http://healthdev.net/site/post.php?s=6067

Eastern Africa: Johnson Kyeswa is Ugandan and working with AIDS organisations. Johnson is passionate about making change in local communities and has worked with The Ugandan Student and Prevention Association and given talks on HIV/AIDS to more than 30,000 young people.

Asia:
Bharathi Ghanashyam is a writer from Chennai in India. She recently attended the Commonwealth in London as part of a small group of KCs reporting from the ‘Supporting the Commonwealth Response to HIV and AIDS' seminar in October, 2009.

I'm sure this is going to be a great effective step taken in order to work as a more influencing body to contribute to HIV, AIDS and TB awareness campaigns. Often the stories are getting concealed from the public spot as the society is traditionally working in such a pattern. So this new approach would come as a fine tool to make some changes in that perspective and bring out something new to fight the social scenario of this kind. I have seen many essay writing on topics related to HIV and AIDS and various consequences it has on the society as a whole. Anyway, thanks for this hope sharing information and simply looking all good things to happen as expected from this initiative.
