AIDS archive at UCT

UCT Libraries has joined forces with the Community Health Media Trust (CHMT) to house the archives of video tapes and transcripts documenting the history of HIV/AIDS in South Africa. The archive, touted to be the first of its kind in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) states, contains policy, stories, and people's personal testimonies on AIDS during its manifestation. Jack Lewis, CHMT director, said the resource would become increasingly valuable as society moves away from "the heat of the epidemic".
