The HIV/AIDS DVD is our general overview lesson on this important subject. It informs the viewer of the seriousness of the HIV virus and the ways in which it is spread. Although it is incurable, it is important to stop the spread of HIV through education and prevention. The viewer is shown ways of doing this, such as the use of contraception and the sterilising of razors and syringes. The DVD helps to break down some of the common misconceptions about HIV and AIDS, in particular how it can and cannot be passed on. One of the points the viewer is taught is the importance of informing their children about HIV and AIDS. Children are just as much at risk as adults, especially unborn babies, who can contract the virus from their mothers. Education and information are vital in stopping the spread of this very serious disease.
Avoiding Malaria raises awareness of the dangers of malaria and the shocking fact that many die from it every year. With immediate treatment and more information, lives could be saved. The disease can affect anyone, with pregnant women and children most at risk. The DVD covers the causes and symptoms of malaria and when people are most at risk of getting it. The DVD also informs the viewer on how to prevent malaria, emphasising the importance of bed nets and insecticides. The prevention of mosquitoes breeding can also drastically reduce cases of malaria. The DVD gives vital and informative information on how to prevent malaria, as well as how to recognise the symptoms of it and what to do if you or someone you know contracts it.
