This is a follow-up to a study that looked at reporting on HIV/AIDS in Nigeria in the print media. The pilot study looked at the years 1990-1996 in two major newspapers. The follow-up study looked at 2000-2006 and showed a significantly higher frequency of reporting on the disease. A second part of the study surveyed a small group of senior librarians on their role in disseminating information about HIV/AIDS. Librarians can play a strong role by partnering with government, other organizations and agencies, and with researchers to be both advocates and educators.
