  4. On stage: She never knew and like many others

    This book contains two short plays: "She never knew", describes the anguish and tribulations of childlessness as a result of STD attacks after loose living. "Like any other lovers" is a deeply moving and devastating portrayal of the relationship between two young lovers from the moment one of them is diagnosed to be HIV positive. The ignorance, prejudice and fear of those around them appear at times to be more formidable enemies than the disease itself. …

  5. On stage: Is this Love?

    This play is a comedy about the problems of young married couples in contemporary Zimbabwean society, which proclaims equality between sexes but also holds very firmly to rather different cultural traditions. The play comes together with two other shorter plays: "Working together" and "Journey to the land of good health". It aims at providing teachers, particularly in rural schools, with short educational plays that could be used on occasions such as speech days and performed without the use of a stage, either indoors or outdoors, with a minimum of props.

  6. Inherit me, Inherit my HIV

    This booklet is one of a series of easy-to-read materials produced by UNESCO. It address a wide range of issues normally not included in materials for HIV/AIDS such as the secondary status of girls and women in the family, the "sugar daddy" phenomenon, wife inheritance, the hyena practice, traditional medicinal practices, superstitions, home-based care and living positively with AIDS. This version deals with sexual transmission made possible by the levirate traditions.
