Abstract

Having one of the highest HIV prevalence rates in the Asia-Pacific region, PNG has struggled to address issues around awareness and effective communication. Due to a number of factors including cultural barriers and remoteness of communities, it has been challenging to bring across education and prevention messages to people. This article presents selected findings of the Komuniti Tok Piksa (KTP) project, a research and production project that investigated the use of visual technologies for HIV awareness with communities in the PNG Highlands. The authors discuss KTP’s innovative approach in combining an indigenous research approach with creative action research that involves community members in message creation. As a result, they demonstrate the potential of such an approach for public health awareness in PNG.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
