SPEAKING BOOKS

Literacy is a luxury that many of us take for granted. That is why SADAG created SPEAKING BOOKS and revolutionized the way healthcare information is delivered to low literacy communities.

The customizable 16-page book, read by local celebrity audio recordings, ensures that vital health and social messages can be seen, heard, read and understood by everyone across the world.

We started with books on Teen Suicide prevention , HIV, AIDS and Depression, Understanding Mental Health and have developed over 100+ titles, such as TB, Malaria, Polio, Vaccines for over 45 countries.

The effects HIV and AIDS can have on an individual's mental health range from the depression and anxiety that may accompany an HIV-positive diagnosis or the death of a loved one, to the dementia and psychosis that can occur when the disease becomes more advanced.

And yet, South Africa's public health sector has virtually no specialised mental health services for people living with HIV. Non-governmental organisations are attempting to fill the gap with support groups and counselling provided mainly by lay staff.

PlusNews, the United Nations HIV and AIDS news service, recently completed a three-part series focusing on the neglected issue of mental health in relation to HIV in South Africa.
