Description

This Wall Street Journal story focuses on the new rules that hundreds of communities on the shores of Lake Victoria have discovered as a "potential key to curbing the Africana AIDS epidemic." The story describes how "in the past few years, local governments and village councils have cracked down on a wide variety of traditional social and sexual practices..." The reporter sheds light on the new practices and the harsh punishment for social violations in different villages, and concludes that " laws can sometimes make progress where doctors and health workers alone have failed." The analysis cites some encouraging evidence on the basis of a survey conducted by a Dutch expert group.
