Abstract

The purpose of this international workshop is to introduce the use of public radio as a non formal education (NFE) and enlightenment tool for HIV-AIDS across the listening population. It also targets the provision of media packages of literacy/educational tools that are specifically aligned to the life orientation for the society especially for individuals with HIV and their relatives, media practitioners, school teachers, students, as well as general public enlightenment on the prevention of HIV-AIDS. Participants would be trained on the process/procedures of utilizing the radio to run literacy programmes on HIV-AIDS. This radio project is an innovative community sensitization programme planned for public listeners but specifically targeting people living with HIV-AIDS and their families. This is a mobile learning activity that would provide training to participants on how to develop/utilize public radio to facilitate HIV-AIDS literacy and mass enlightenment on HIV-AIDS. By HIV-AIDS literacy, we mean empowering an individual or people living with the HIV-AIDS to have the ability to read, write and understand the issues surrounding HIV-AIDS – coping with HIV-AIDS, medication, work and stay alive! Furthermore, people in the society are taught about HIV-AIDS – its causes, prevention, cure, and supporting people living with HIV-AIDS through the Radio HIV-AIDS Literacy project. The participants will learn the strategies to plan, package and execute the community radio talkshow to reach-out to their respective communities – using phone-in live discussions, guest interviews, music, debates, quizzes, dramas, role plays, etc, to educate and enlighten the listener on HIV-AIDS.
