Malawi’s AIDS Mechanisms Blamed

Malawi government blames mechanisms utilised to dispatch messages of HIV/AIDS as a contribution to the virus transmission

Malawi’s Department of Nutrition and HIV/AIDS in the Office of the President and Cabinet’s principal secretary, Edith Mkawa, blames the mechanisms utilised to dispatch messages of HIV/AIDS in the early 1990s as a contributing factor to the increased transmission of the virus in that country.

Mkawa has been quoted as saying that attributes that people in the country do not fully understand the concepts of HIV and AIDS because of traditional norms which influenced the spread of the disease.

She states that: "People are resisting from adapting to change to protect themselves from contracting HIV, though they know HIV is deadly; however, this depends on how they understand the concept of HIV/AIDS in the first place."
