HIV & AIDS - fewer words, more action, more pictures

Sifiso Yalo"The fight against HIV and AIDS just became more animated with the publishing of a new definitive resource on the pandemic by Johannesburg skills development specialist Marina Appelbaum.

Teaming up with the leading newspaper satirist and award winning cartoonist Sifiso Yalo. Appelbaum authored the comprehensive book as a response to the "tired and pointless debate over this disease that was killing people while many of us just carried on talking ." MORGAN NAIDU 2009.

The result is a USER-FRIENDLY  resource book, complete with full colour illustrations and a NO-HOLDS barred approach to many issues surrounding HIV and AIDS that people are afraid to talk about. 

This guide and resource book is told in SIMPLE LANGUAGE with ACCURATE, RESEARCHED CONTENT. 

There is NO RELIGIOUS OR POLITICAL AGENDA - it is rather about empowering people with correct information and no hidden agendas.  

It is presented in a FUN, ENGAGING AND ENTERTAINING WAY - the magic of cartoons helps deals with issues in this way.

It appeals to EVERYONE - from a 10 year old to a 60 year old .... as a tool, if left on a table  unopened it is useless. In the hands of school learners, educators, business leaders, employees, communities, husbands, wives and children, it becomes a powerful weapon that can save lives and change behaviour. 

The original book is written in ENGLISH  with difficult words highlighted and translated into Zulu, Afrikaans, Xhosa and Sotho.  The book has also been translated into French, Portuguese, Malagasy , Setswana, Xhosa and Zulu. 

It is an A5, SPINE-BOUND, FULL COLOUR book of 82 PAGES  covering key educational content on every aspect of HIV and AIDS. 

We have been distributed in CNA, EXCLUSIVE BOOKS and many other bookstores country wide. Currently Jane Simmonds who is responsible for sale and distribution can be reached on the numbers listed below.
