Paladin HIV/AIDS Awareness programmes continued in local communities. Four new booklets written by Paladin Social Development Officer Robyn Nottingham have been translated into three local languages and distributed to the Kayelekera Mine employees and the community. A total of 22 booklets have been published, covering social topics including HIV/AIDS prevention; malaria and chest infection management, dealing with alcohol abuse; care of the new born; prevention of diarrhoea; combating deforestation; theft and corruption and wise use of wages. These booklets have proven hugely popular due to the highly relevant subject matter and the novelty of having reading material available in local languages. In the past 12 months, Paladin has distributed more than 70,000 copies to employees, students and local communities.
