The wrong way to fight AIDS in Sudan

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Sudan, Health

In Sudan, Zizou from Djerba critiques what he calls a “poster of death” [1] that uses a skull and crossbones [2] [Fr] to warn people about the dangers of AIDS, without offering any information about treatment or prevention. He writes that AIDS is no longer a death sentence, and that the wrong messages “help propagate the virus” and “worsen the stigmatization” of those who carry it.
