Listening to 'Health e news' on SAFM this morning (19/11/09), I learnt for the first time that according to the last population census, the population of Lesotho has shrunk to 2.1 million in the previous census to 18 million. Ngaka ea WHO okametseng manane a koatsi Afrika Boroa le Lesotho e fana ka tlhaloso ea hore, sesosa ke koatsi ena ea li-kobong.

Tlhaloso e tsoela pele ho bolela hore Lesotho le hlaha borarong lefatseng kahofela ka tsoaetso. E bang mokhoa ona o tsoela pele, ho hlakile hore sechaba sena se tla fela.

Ha ke shebile li thred tse ngoloang mona forumong - leha ke amohela ha bosoasi ele ntho e teng, ke ipotsa hore na boemo bona rea bo tseba, hona re bo nkela hlohong na? Kapa re nka ele bothata bo shebaneng le ba babang, boo rona bo tlang ho re pota ka thoko (ho fihlela re se re tsoaelitsoe)?

Ba tsebang a ke le le hlaloseng, eka kholumolumo e se e kene ka hare ho sechaba.

Le ha le ka thola, ena yona ke pharela. Nahana ho se hothwe Lesotho ha le sa leyo, and to take this further there was a report suggesting that if the situation is not address, the nation will be wiped out in 30 years. More serious ke taba ya hore basotho ba heso ekare taba ena ha re e bone. Re rata ho bua ka ho kotana ho feta ho bua ka ntho tse bohlokwa, ke shebile the foramo tsa naha tse ding conducted in english and Lesotho is only one obsesed with sex. I know RSA has problems with racial relation as well but ke nahana hore basotho re tlameha ho itekola re itjhebe. Bothatha hase tjelete ya di ARV haka lo but the level of thinking amongst us. Here is a challenge from this point le seke la nthohaka look at the content and atteck the content and move on.

ache mona ke lumellana le uena. people have to change their attitude if Lesotho were to curb the spread of HIV/AIDS. People are aware of aids - molisana kapa motho ea rutehileng and despite the increasing levels of media education and campaigns, ha hona letho le etsahalang.

I always take Uganda as a shining example of how normal people can come together to fight the enemy. Uganda, like Lesotho is a poor country. Uganda HAD a high rate of hiv/aids. all that is in the PAST! Motho e mong le e mong ea neng a bua ka koatsi ea bosolla Thlapi o ne a bolela Uganda. Where is Uganda today? that country is performing much much better ho loantsana le lefu lena; while Lesotho is underperforming. Compared to the rates of aids in the past, Uganda has now very low rates

The challenge of HIV and AIDS in a country like Lesotho can prove to be very complex, due to numerous factors. However, one thing remains: this phenomenon has been talked about so much that almost everyone must be knowing it. WHAT WE DO with that little or abundance of information is what matters.
I think as individuals, we are each responsible for our lives before we look at ouselves as a collective. It is unto every Mosotho to assume responsibility about their lives, and as afr as i can imagine, nothing would help as much as getting back to the morals/practices that define RESPECT.
This is a really thought-provoking thread Ts'enolo.

might be very interesting to mention what exactly those factors are, that make aids situation in Lesotho very complex. before those factors are discussed, maybe we won't be getting anywhere. individual responsibility or not.

While may deduce poverty as one of the main drivers of HIV and AIDS. In Lesotho, my sorry feeling is that our health facilities, esp government hospital, do not give hope that they are not contributing towards the spread of this pandemic. The deterioration of service and facilities make me scared all the time.

The morality issue is another strong aspect and indicator of how exposed our people are. At one point, i wonder to myself if this has anything to do with the level of education in our people.
It also makes me wonder if one should question what literacy is in relation to education. While Lesotho may be regarded as a country with high literacy, the question remains as to whether that implies an enlightened, understanding society.

Likengkeng, it would be assumed that by now, almost 80, if not 90% of Basotho know about HIV and AIDS. Therefore my view is that people tend to play ignorance to the information provided. It is in that human nature of 'not me' that is leaving our people - you and I, to exposed this pandemic.

che mathata a Lesotho and its neighbors when it comes to the issue of HIV/AIDS! nobody feels responsible and that's the point! yet people can do so much. babusi ba naha who only need to commit resources to hiv/aids programs and ensure that these resources reach those in need. babusi ba naha can do so much by preventing sexual crimes such as rape and child abuse. they could see to it that sexuality (sex education) is discussed openly so denial stigma and hiv discrimination are addressed.

baruti ba likerekeng could also play the role of informing their congregation on hiv/aids without pointing that moralistic finger done some. health must come b4 so called dignity. in these days when aids is ravaging southern africa, i don't understand why older and more traditional people are reluctant to discuss sex and sexuality (NOT how sex is discussed mostly here on topix!). their reluctance to discuss these things makes the problem of reaching young people thru traditional channels like churches and schools even worse.

this reminds of the story of this molisana who claims his parents do not know about aids. what a lie!

i also repeat: Poverty is not predominent driver of the epidemic. there are some people who happen to be rich, happen to have gone to school, happen to occupy high positions but are equally ignorant

Tanki Nyao Nyao. But at the moment, not even the institute of marriage is the safe haven against infection. however, if marriage is coupled with the three safety rules you've mentioned, marriage would garantee safety.

if marriage was a safe haven from hiv infection, there wouldn't be so many married women testing positive at ante-natal clinics; and giving birth to hiv infected babies
