Public Libraries Participation In Hiv/Aids Awareness Campaign In South West Nigeria

R O Ejiwoye

Abstract




The paper examines public libraries involvement in HIV/AIDS awareness campaign in South West Nigeria. These include the materials and services available on HIV/AIDS and challenges to their participation in the war against the epidemic. The study revealed that public libraries in South West Nigeria are not participating in the HIV/AIDS awareness campaign owing to lack of information materials, lack of support from government and non-governmental agencies, financial constraint, and dearth of trained personnel. The study suggested adequate funding, support from government and non- governmental organizations and provision of adequate information materials on HIV/AIDS for the public libraries.
