Introduction:

Jiving with Science is a new public engagement initiative of the Africa Centre for Health and Population Studies. Africa Centre is an international HIV research facility with a partnership HIV testing, treatment and care programme run jointly with the KZN Department of Health.

This project involves developing, distributing and evaluating 4 CDs over 2 years.

The aim is to foster community discussion about scientific research and to bring evidence based HIV health promoting messages to everyday spaces such as public transportation, leisure spaces and shopping precincts.

Music: Jiving with Science CD 3: Uhlelo lukaMroza - benefits of regular and repeated HIV testing, the management of HIV as a chronic disease

Authors: Astrid Treffry-Goatley, Mduduzi Mahlinza, John Imrie




Introduction: CD 3, or Uhlelo lukaMroza (Mroza Show) focuses on regular and repeated HIV testing. Since this theme concerns a wide cross section of the population, the CD is targeted at more of a mixed audience. It features a selection of maskanda, kwaito and gospel songs and is endorsed by the Ukhozi FM radio DJ, Mroza Buthelezi. The narrative is framed within a radio talk show hosted by Mroza. A local nurse is a special guest on the show and answers questions about the benefits of regular and repeated HIV testing, the management of HIV as a chronic disease and the availability of HIV testing facilities and ART in the community.
