Digital story telling and Web 2.0 for advocacy for the rights of people living with HIV/AIDS in Congo

AZUR Development, as part of its AIDS Network Africa initiative has just been selected among six grantees of Rising Voices and Open Society Institute’s Health Media Initiative projects.

AZUR Development will train communication officers of local AIDS organizations in digital story telling, podcasting, and the creation of blogs to document the stigma and discrimination of people infected and affected by HIV and AIDS in Congo in order to use them as a tool for advocacy, education, and the promotion rights of people infected with HIV.

Each communication officer will describe how the AIDS pandemic is currently affecting the local community where he or she works and what daily life is like for people living with HIV and AIDS.

In May 2008, AZUR Development organized with the AIDS Africa Network a regional workshop on the rights of people living with HIV / AIDS in Brazzaville, Congo with 50 participants from 11 countries.
