The word “AIDS” is one of the most complex, confusing and mysterious words in science, medicine and in the English language. It’s impossible for a medical dictionary to accurately define it. No matter what anyone says, “AIDS” is not clear cut. Its four letters which make up the acronym are centered in a web of complexity, so much so it took us 58-minutes to scratch the surface. In this clip we look at: CDC: Initial AIDS Definition, Clinical AIDS: A New Disease, A Growing Family: AIDS Marker Diseases and Indicators, Creating an African AIDS Definition, Bangui: AIDS By Numbers, Bangui: Peripheral Psychological Damage, Bangui Redux: National Variations in AIDS Definitions, Through a Glass Darkly: African AIDS Statistics, Bangui Westernized, Politics and Public Health: A Study in Conflict, CD4 T-Cell Count Marker: Medical Application, Addition by Subtraction: 1997 CDC Tables 11 and 12 Visit www.houseofnumbers.com for more information

A film in Yoruba language with English captions. The story: Nina is about to go meet up with her boyfriend, Adama. Nina’s aunt, sensing that it might be a good time to talk with her niece about men and their predatory instincts, provides some matter-of-fact advice. Idea: Aram Dièye, aged 16 (Senegal) / Directed by: Idrissa Ouédraogo (Burkina Faso). A SCENARIOS FROM AFRICA film (www.globaldialogues.org)
(In Swahili, without English subtitles.) Traditional male gender norms encourage men to equate a range of risky behaviors–the use of violence, substance abuse, the pursuit of multiple sexual partners, the domination of women–with being manly. Rigid constructs of masculinity also lead men to view health-seeking behaviors as a sign of weakness. These gender dynamics all play a critical role in increasing both men and women’s vulnerability to HIV. In 2008, the EngenderHealth Tanzania Male Gender Norms Initiative, along with the MenEngage Global Alliance, conducted a digital storytelling workshop with Tanzanian men who have been able to challenge and overcome harmful male gender norms. These men recorded first person narratives about their lives; chose still pictures, images and songs to illustrate their stories; and learned to edit these materials to the short stories contained in this DVD. These stories are being shown in trainings and community screenings throughout Tanzania as a way of promoting on going EngenderHealth efforts to involve men in preventing HIV & AIDS.
