Our latest eBook with Foreign Policy Magazine was written by Pulitzer Center grantee Peter Chilson. He explains the historical roots of the current day crisis, seen through the lens of his time walking the country, living with families and embedding with military groups.

Pulitzer Center grantees David Rochkind and Jens Erik Gould are in the field in Honduras. They are exploring the Garifuna’s use of their culture in fighting HIV—from the recording studio to the dance floor and beyond.
The Garifuna are an Afro-Caribbean people descended from African slaves. They have a unique language, music and culture. Despite being often forgotten in the global conversation on AIDS, the Garifuna also have the highest HIV rates in the western hemisphere.
Follow Rochkind and Gould as they build their stories – we’ll be re-blogging their posts, Tweets and Instagrams here while they’re in the field. The Tumblr posts will aggregate in this feed and their reporting will be on their Pulitzer Center project page.

[Edward] Ssemwanga, [a disease expert who works at a regional hospital in Mpigi], says that as [malaria] drugs have poured in, led by well-meaning aid groups from around the world, the underlying causes of malaria – poor water treatment systems and housing, and basic facilities that leave people exposed to mosquitoes – barely get a second look. He says: “The problem is broader than people want to believe. They are advocating for programmes like drug therapy but we need to go to the source.”
