Living With AIDS

Loading...
Sorious Samura, a European journalist of African descent, volunteered to work as an orderly in a hospital in Zambia. The majority of the hospital's patients are HIV positive. Confronted daily with death, he describes his workplace as being like a frontline war zone. The staff works under horrendous conditions where protective gloves are a luxury and shrouds for the dead are stained with the blood of previous corpses. On some days the running water stops after only an hour or two in the morning. Samura exposes the untold story of AIDS; how poverty and the complex nature of African culture and sexuality are hampering efforts to eradicate this horrifying disease. After one month, he is left with the realization that if the war against HIV in Africa is to be won, poverty, ignorance and A [...]

Riders for Health [electronic resource]: Zambia

Lack of transport is one of the greatest barriers to delivering health care in remote parts of Africa, causing NGOs and local governments to abandon projects prematurely. Former motorbike racer Andrea Coleman and her husband Barry founded Riders for Health in 1996 to provide practical solutions to the continent's transportation problems. They created a maintenance system for bicycles, cars, ambulances, and trucks that has virtually eliminated breakdowns. Now they face a new challenge from host Alvin Hall: to set up a medical transport network in rural Zambia in just six months. This program depicts their efforts to clear the logistical, legal, political, and business hurdles.

CAMFED [electronic resource]: Zambia

For millions of girls across Africa, a decent education is beyond reach. CAMFED, an international nongovernmental, nonprofit organization founded in 1993, aims to change that by paying for books, fees, even school uniforms-and in the process, break the cycle of poverty. The charity has developed a model for supporting girls to go to school, start businesses, and return to their communities as leaders. Alvin Hall, who also transcended poverty through educational scholarships, wants to help the CAMFED girls broaden their horizons and raise their expectations even higher. This program follows his interaction with the group in Zambia and its response to his inspiring influence.

Zambia [electronic resource]: Assessing the Millennium Development Goals

Kenneth Kaunda remains a dominant figure on the Zambian and African landscape. One of the first to break the silence of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, he has been an outspoken voice for Africa and has been an arch critic of the European colonial enterprise. In this program, he gives us his current assessment of the country, the continent, and of the Millennium Development Goals. Zambia remains one of the poorest countries in the world with almost two-thirds of its population living below the poverty threshold and over half in extreme poverty?

Zambia [electronic resource]: We Are All Orphans

One in five adults in Zambia suffers from HIV or AIDS, and as we see in this episode most people in the country have been directly impacted by the disease. On the way to Lusaka, we meet two young orphan women studying to make a better life for themselves, and for their entire country. One carries the virus and tries to raise a child who is not infected, who is convinced she will one day be a doctor and help others with the disease. The other studies economics at the University of Lusaka and believes she will be the first woman president in Africa. Even the horror they have witnessed in their young lives can't stop them from dreaming big.

His meager profits support his entire extended family who subsist in shanty towns miles from the market. Their lives exemplify the poverty plaguing Africa today. They have v [...]
