Digital Stories: Namibia
EngenderHealth and Lifeline/Childline hosted a three-day digital storytelling workshop in Namibia, where 10 women and men shared their experiences with relationships and HIV. Developed with digital support from the University of the Western Cape, these stories focus on the struggles that women and men face in living with HIV or according to prescribed, traditional notions of masculinity/femininity. They reveal how they are challenging gender norms, how this can impact HIV transmission in the country, and what this could mean for the future.
EngenderHealth and Lifeline/Childline are also developing a facilitators’ guide so that communities can use these stories in discussion groups.
