Summary
Sorious Samura, a European journalist of African descent, volunteered to work as an orderly in a hospital in Zambia. The majority of the hospital's patients are HIV positive. Confronted daily with death, he describes his workplace as being like a frontline war zone. The staff works under horrendous conditions where protective gloves are a luxury and shrouds for the dead are stained with the blood of previous corpses. On some days the running water stops after only an hour or two in the morning.Samura exposes the untold story of AIDS; how poverty and the complex nature of African culture and sexuality are hampering efforts to eradicate this horrifying disease. After one month, he is left with the realization that if the war against HIV in Africa is to be won, poverty, ignorance and African sexual attitudes have to be tackled in the bluntest possible manner. He delivers a scathing condemnation of the irresponsibility of African men regarding sexual matters
