Long before Covid-19, there was and still is HIV/Aids. And long before the 2020 lockdown, there were videos of media personality Edwin Katamba aka MC Kats, first in December 2019 making his HIV status public and then a more unfortunate one released by a girl he had just had sex with.
Both videos sparked a storm of stigma against the celebrated broadcaster and MC, with some thinking he would not recover from it. But clearly, MC Kats knows how to make lemonade from his lemons, because his latest project is a campaign to combat stigma against people living with HIV.

A new study shows that the number of adolescents seeking mental health services has doubled over the past two years.
The study, conducted by Access to Medicine and Tinada Youth Organisation with support from Open Society Initiative for Eastern Africa, found that at least six out of ten young people suffered mental illness.
Some mental illnesses have been linked to abnormal functioning of nerve cell circuits that connect particular brain regions, ultimately leading to depression.

MCK CEO, David Omwoyo, while launching the initiative on Tuesday, noted that the Ministry of Health (MoH) guidelines on the control of the virus, have affected the work of journalists and that they need support to carry out their work.
“We are eager to see to it that journalists are facilitated to carry out their work in this environment of depressed incomes and economic activity. The media plays a critical role in public health messaging, and as such, we want to ensure that we do what we can to facilitate their work for the greater public good,” he said.
