World Aids Day Edition: African Voices Podcast

To mark World Aids Day, we interviewed Jonny Steinberg, author of Sizwe’s Test, which tells a story of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in South Africa through the eyes of Sizwe, a young man living in a rural part of South Africa, where the virus has decimated his community. South Africa has one of the highest rates of HIV/AIDS in the world – the prevalence rate is near 18%. In this interview, Steinberg talks about what can be done to combat the virus in Southern Africa and beyond. He also discusses the role that regional coalitions on the African continent can play in making sure preventative measures against the virus are put in place, and those already infected, can live a decent life.
