HIV/AIDS Outreach Programme in Southern Africa
Neddy Matshalanga , Edem Djokotoe
Social Transformation and Empowerment Projects (STEPS) came into being in 2001 as a non-profit making organisation to oversee and to manage a media intervention project for HIV and AIDS in southern Africa called Steps for the Future. The project was based on the idea of using film in a non-broadcast context for HIV/AIDS education and awareness. The project currently under review had a life span from 2003 to April 2006. During the current project period, Steps for the Future partnered with International Video Fair (IVF), a non-profit making trust in Zimbabwe that also used film as an information dissemination tool to poor communities across the country. This evaluation was commissioned by Sida.
