July 4, 2007

South Africa has the highest number of people affected with HIV, with about 5 million people in that country being HIV+. The only real applied treatment for HIV at this point is currently the use of antiretroviral therapies (ARVs) which allow those infected with HIV to live normal lives.

Building New Livelihoods In A Conflict Zone Using ICTs

July 3, 2007

Life in northern Uganda implies living within what essentially amounts to genocide. Since 1987, the Lords Resistance Army has been engaging in activities to overthrow the Ugandan government, with innocent civilians bearing the brunt of their brutal tactics, often via the forced kidnapping and recruitment of child soldiers. This piece documents how one organization, Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief (CPAR) has been training those released from captivity to use information and communication technologies (ICTs) to rebuild their livelihoods.
