As part of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine’s activities surrounding World AIDS day, which includes a small exhibition about the work the School does in this field. Philippe Mayaud, Professor of Infectious Disease & Reproductive Health, will introduce two films about HIV/AIDS in Burkina Faso and Tanzania, after the screenings there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
Doni Doni Ban Bela ( ≈ 30 minutes)
A documentary about AIDS in Burkina Faso. Men and women tell about themselves and express their concerns about AIDS and responsibility. The women say that the men should accept more responsibility for having safe sex and not put women at risk.
Corn, Cattle, Coconuts and Condoms (35 minutes)
A film which shows the innovative approach taken by Dr Monique Oliff (a former PhD student at the School) in bringing the results of her research on existing reproductive health services (including STI and HIV/AIDS) in Tanzania to the decision-makers. The film is an example of how researchers may want to disseminate their findings while attempting to hold decision makers accountable and committed. Too often, participants in research are not involved in the dissemination process and the uptake of research results.
Admission: Free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis.
