also known as the plant
for the past twenty eight years of work with people living with h_i_v_ aids in
different regions of the world
h_i_v_ is an infectious disease a poverty meaning that poor people
contracted more often due to a lack of resources and human rights
though the other treatment for h_i_v_ every improved the transmission rates
are not decreasing as rapidly as required to control the h_i_v_ aids
and some areas the rates are not decreasing at all
and this is where we in the medicine and public health professions need a lot of
we've reached our limit
we need serious social and cultural assistance in order to reach people and
make them feel comfortable empowered to look after their help
which is integral to their families and communities health
and we think that music
can help
program project idea is to organize unions this hopeful however music
to help break down social barriers in statement a trustee
the fact is deputy cio d_a_'s pandemic is over thirty years old but as of yet
the lacks in organized presentation of the global social political impact of
h_i_v_-aids specific music
that his songs written and performed about the h_i_v_ aids pandemic
much of this music is positive compelling invokes emotions interval the
life experiences and can assist in the killing of individuals and communities
that's what this project is all about
the project model seeks to address critical enduring problems with the
h_i_v_ aids pandemic
lack of awareness of h_i_v_ aids and how to protect themselves
and loved ones
lack of empowerment to be tested and follow-up for treatment
lack of family community solidarity to support people living with h_i_v_
to confront perhaps the greatest challenge than a stigma against people
living with h_i_v_ aids which affects people both in general society in when
faced by destructive
bureaucratic policies
as nelson mandela points out
h_i_v_-aids is a human rights issues
and it's clear that stigma against people living with h_i_v_ aids
and their families and communities needs to be destroyed before the pandemic is
well music has tremendous formative power for individuals and community
and what is right with intelligent socially relevant lyrics music can be
one of the most carrying a revolutionary arts man

supporting people communities affected by h_i_v_-aids
and then they can be inspired to help break down barriers to acceptance and
work towards the revocation stigma that violates the human rights of people
living with h_i_v_
