Teaching notes on HIV and AIDS

Take your audience back through the story, follow the course of the infection in this family and talk about what their story shows. An example of doing this is presented below in a way that you can use directly or adapt when teaching.

¨ What has happened to the family?

The story started when Mukasa had unprotected sex with someone who looked healthy but was infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The virus was passed to him during sex. Look again at the picture of Mukasa after he came back from his trip to the city. By looking at him, you cannot tell that Mukasa is infected with HIV.
