Tsima update: sharing stories with the community

Posted on January 25, 2016 by Rhian in News

The Tsima TasP (Treatment as Prevention) Intervention in collaboration with Sonke Gender Justice, which is an ongoing project here in Agincourt, is utilizing digital storytelling as part of its campaign to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS.

Through a series of short videos, local community members talk about the issue of HIV/AIDS in an effort to encourage the community to mobilise against its spread. Two examples of such storytelling come from Rhulani Mkansi and Mpho Lewele, both of whom are residents of local villages and are living with HIV.

These videos aim to tell the story of how testing for HIV/AIDS, taking ARVs and abiding by treatment regimes can positively affect one’s health and life. They are shown to the community as part of the Tsima TasP intervention.
