Zambia: Community Radio Stations Key in HIV/AIDS Fight

May 10, 2005

The wife of the U.S. ambassador to Zambia urged community radio stations to play a larger role in educating rural communities about HIV/AIDS. Speaking at a one-day HIV/AIDS media workshop in Livingstone, Geovenna Brennan said, "Community radio stations are better tools to educate local communities about HIV/AIDS because you can communicate using local languages which people are conversant with." Brennan also said there is a need to establish Voluntary Counseling and Testing (VCT) facilities in rural areas following a five-day VCT promotion and mobile counseling exercise conducted in rural Livingstone. In five areas involved in the promotion, 245 people were tested, said Brennan.
