AIDS – An African Perspective


A film from 1988, looking at the AIDS epidemic spreading through Africa at the time from an African perspective.


In Africa, in a culture where gay sex and IV drugs are said to be rare, AIDS has spread fast through unsafe straight sex. Sufferers are interviewed without any attempt to hide identities. “We have to fight it right out in the open,” says president Kaunda of Zambia, whose son died of the disease. “There’s no need to be ashamed of it.” Late in the day, his and other governments are mounting an extensive campaign of education, particularly aimed at schoolkids (1.7 per cent of Zambian pupils are infected). But easy attitudes to recreational sex are not easy to dispel. A newspaper is quoted: “People are scared of AIDS during the day but at night I’m not so sure.”
