Africa Centre for HIV/ AIDS Management
Welcome to Stellenbosch University

The Africa Institute


​The Africa Institute for HIV/AIDS Management uses interactive educational theatre to address the mobilisation of communities with respect to HIV and AIDS. This includes eliminating stigma, developing partnerships between social and governmental decision-makers and systematically involving infected and affected communities and individuals.

This role is fulfilled by the Educational Theatre Company, established in 2004. Actors, mostly from the Stellenbosch community, were auditioned and selected and trained in dramatic performance, theatre skills as well as HIV and AIDS awareness.
