Breaking the Silence – Teaching and the AIDS Pandemic

Blended Learning Course “Breaking the Silence – Teaching and the AIDS Pandemic”

Central to the entire course is the notion that while HIV is a fragile virus, the AIDS pandemic is about human beings. It is about us. While we have been describing the HI virus for nearly three decades and blaming it for the pain, suffering and death we have endured, the stark reality is that the virus is nothing without us. It has no arms, legs or wings. It can go nowhere that we do not agree to carry it – and carry it we have, to every continent, every nation and every corner of the earth. This course will prompt you, and at times provoke you, to think about our role – your role – in spreading the virus, and in making the entire pandemic a thing of the past.
