Cartoon: HIV as a lion, CD4 as soldiers and ARVs make the soldiers stronger! (translated to Zulu)

Authors: Tulio de Oliveira

This series of presentations used cartoons that portray HIV as a lion (Ibhubesi translation in Zulu), CD4 cells as soldiers (Amasosha, Zulu translation) and that show how ARVs make the soldiers stronger as they provide them with armour.

BioAfrica and SATuRN use art to present scientific facts. We are involved in many community engagement activities. Over the last years we have presented on eight occasions to the community around Africa Centre. The presentations are focused on the origin of HIV, the causes and consequences of drug resistance development and how to successfully manage HIV and TB treatment.
