Example text

In what follows I will provide a brief historical background by showing how HIV prevention schemes and CBT projects have been developed in parallel and gradually converging trajectories, from top-heavy, expert-driven campaigns to bottom-up approaches increasingly owned and run by community residents.

When HIV became an epidemic in the Kagera region it was alien to everyone. A macabre spirit sneaked into people’s lives like a myth from nowhere and haunted them seemingly by quirks of fate, took possession of their bodies, one by one, invisibly, hollowly, silently, until wearing them down in a slow, unbearable loss of life.

Theatre is the mode of testimony and dissent that reveals such complex, biased and inequitable conditions on a community level and, as long as it is not fully recognized by policy-makers, community theatre will continue to fail as no other HIV prevention dare fail. In what follows I will provide a brief historical background by showing how HIV prevention schemes and CBT projects have been developed in parallel and gradually converging trajectories, from top-heavy, expert-driven campaigns to bottom-up approaches increasingly owned and run by community residents.
