Protection: Masculinity & Condom Use in Sub-Saharan Africa

a Firework Media Production ; conceived by Jill Lewis ; director, Francois Verster ; producer, Neil Brandt
Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
HIV/AIDS has ravaged entire populations in sub-Saharan Africa. Yet educational efforts to prevent the acceleration of the epidemic continue to clash with traditional cultural attitudes that view protected sex as unmanly. Protection provides a fascinating look at the origins of these attitudes, and examines how they are being kept alive by a set of hyper masculine myths that extol risk taking as an emblem of strength, virility, and potency. An eye-opening exploration of what it will take to make real and transformative change and eradicate HIV/AIDS once and for all.
