HIV in South Africa: Digital Participation

In the film Yesterday, HIV is discussed and the stigma of having the disease. I did a little research on HIV/AIDS in South and found that the country has had a long struggle with trying to lower the infection rate. In the New York Times article, the recent outbreak of AIDS in 2008 devastated the country and describes how in the recent years a lot of research has been done to combat the spreading of the disease in the country. The Guardian article,  focuses on the birth mothers and women in general that are afraid to discuss the disease because the stigma HIV places upon people.

Here are the articles:
