Peace Corps Blog

This is a blog of my experience as a Peace Corps volunteer, working in South Africa. My job title is a capacity builder, which means I help increase the effectiveness of a local NGO that does AIDS/HIV related work.

I was recently asked to adapt some of my blog posts into an essay that discusses the HIV/AIDS situation in South Africa, as well as some of my experiences here. The essay is primarily based off an earlier post, where I discuss the disconnect between understanding and action with regards to the continuing HIV pandemic. In that post, I promised a follow up where I would discuss the causes for this disconnect, but never made that addition to my blog. So in the essay is also the long-ago promised investigation into the causes of the disconnect between thought and behavior here.

Please feel free to read or download the essay by clicking the link below:
