Introducing Transforming HIV prevention & care for marginalised populations: Using information & communication technologies (ICTs) in community-based & led approaches

The very notion of the ‘end of AIDS’ is an ideal that many people—communities, researchers, policymakers and programmers—have tirelessly strived for over many years. Turning this into a living reality is predicated on applying lessons creatively with ‘out of the box’ thinking and ensuring that communities at the forefront of the epidemic are a key part of the response.  This is especially true with rapidly evolving online environments where populations most affected by HIV and AIDS now frequently connect and communicate, from reaching key populations who meet partners and clients online to ensuring that prevention and care messages and services meet the demands of today’s online reality.

We are only 20 years into the digital revolution, but now is the time to “upload” our HIV research, service delivery, and programming approaches to this virtual environment.  This open-access and online book edited by Christopher S Walsh is highly welcomed and timely. Its contributors address in succinct and practical ways, the challenges and opportunities of using information communication technologies (ICTs) to improve HIV outcomes among especially marginalised communities. Any researcher, programmer or practitioner working towards an “AIDS-free generation” should read this agenda-setting book, for in equal measure this resource enlightens and educates. It also instigates and inspires.

Digital Culture & Education (DCE) is an international inter-disciplinary peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the exploration of digital technology’s impacts on identity, education, art, society, culture and narrative within social, political, economic, cultural and historical contexts.

We are interested in empirical and conceptual approaches to theorising globalisation, development, sustainability, wellbeing, subjectivities, networks, new media, gaming, multimodality, literacies and related issues and their implications for how we educate and why. We encourage submissions in a variety of modes and invite guest editors to propose special editions.

DCE is an online, open access journal. It does not charge for article submission or for publication. All manuscripts submitted to DCE are double blind reviewed. Articles are published through a Creative Commons (CC) License and made available for viewing and download on a bespoke page at www.digitalcultureandeducation.com
