A study of health reporting in Botswana, Cameroon, Kenya, Malawi and Senegal, by the African Women's Media Center (AWMC), with a focus on the media's response to covering HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria. It used a combination of personal interviews, focus groups (with the media, government officials and NGOs) and analysis of newspapers. More than 25 million people Africans live with HIV/AIDS, while 90 percent of all deaths from malaria are in Africa. Timely, accurate and responsible information is a key to managing, living with and conquering these diseases, says the AWMC. The media has a central role to play in this.
