    This week we are pleased to mark World AIDS day by presenting two more original stories. Farmers in Zimbabwe tell Farm Radio Weekly that they know about HIV and AIDS − but they know little of World AIDS Day. Some would like to be more involved in activities and participate in raising awareness.

    From Tanzania, we hear from a farmer who describes how he felt on discovering he was HIV-positive. But he did not sit back and wait to become ill. He decided to do something positive for his family.

    In the resource section we provide you with a website address where you will be able to view many of the presentations from AMARC’s 2009 Pan-African Conference.

    Finally, our script of the week is also on the topic of HIV and AIDS.

    Happy reading!

    -The Farm Radio Weekly team
