Silent Death - Aids in East Africa
Aids in Ostafrika - der leise Tod
Up to now, half of the 150,000 inhabitants of this mountainous southern region have been infected by the virus. The situation is similar in Zambia: Up to 70% of the 100,000 inhabitants of the region of Fiwila are infected. In addressing Aids, traditional healers - native natural healers and shamans - have worked in close collaboration with proponents of traditional medicine. But the struggle seems in vain: Aids is on the increase across all of Eastern Africa, reaching all the way down to South Africa.
