2011/4 Tackling HIV and AIDS

By Philip Lee on November 17, 2011
Mass and community media can unthinkingly reinforce stigmatisation and discrimination against people living with HIV and AIDS. Beyond the important question of language and image, there are those of care, respect, support, and human dignity. As one writer in this issue comments, "HIV and AIDS is not about 'us' and 'them'. It is about speaking out for community, inclusion, sufficiency, tolerance and justice." Plus+ two articles on communicating climate change, evaluating news coverage of Darfur, and inclusive communication in Latin America.
