    Note; Najua hii forum haiendani na topic yangu, but kwa kuwa Wataaluma wengi hupitia hapa naomba hii post ikae hapa kwa muda....tafadhali Wakuu

    Dear JF Members, a favour please;

    Am working on a brief information sheet (4-6 pages) on HIV and indigenous communities in Africa/ Tanzania. I have made some contacts regarding the research but it has not been Successfull.

    I wonder if you know of any organizations or individuals who are or have done research about indigenous populations in Africa, have projects specifically focusing on African indigenous populations and HIV/AIDS, etc.

    Natanguliza shukrani Waungwana !

    Habari gani?
    I'm not sure if this is a coincidence, or if we are working on the same project, but we too are putting together a fact sheet on HIV/AIDS and Indigenous populations in Africa (as well as Canada). Do you by chance have an affiliation with the indigenous populations of Africa co-ordinating committe (IPACC)? I am writing from the Interagency Coalition on AIDS and Development in Ottawa, Canada.
    Asante na ninatumaini nitapata jibu yako mapema.

    Astante kwa jibu yako, bwana.
    Samahani--my Swahili is good, but not perfect, so I will resort to writing in English. I would love to be put in touch with your collegues to see if we can share information.
    If you prefer, feel free to send me a private message.
    Asante sana.
    --Layla

    What do you mean by 'indigenous people'? Africans or any people living in Africa or Tanzania?

    Sorry for any confusion.
    We are using the Indigenous Peoples of Africa Co-ordinating Committee's definition of "indigenous". They describe Indigenous populations in Africa as follows:
    "Particular communities, due to historical and environmental circumstances, have found themselves outside the state-system and underrepresented in governance. These ‘first-peoples' or ‘autochthonous peoples' have associated themselves with the United Nations' standards on the rights of indigenous peoples. This is not to deny other Africans their status; it is to emphasise that affirmative recognition is necessary for hunter-gatherers and herding peoples to ensure their survival.
    The claims to being indigenous in Africa are related to a cluster of characteristics:
    • political and economic marginalisation rooted in colonialism;
    • de facto discrimination based often on the dominance of agricultural peoples in the State system (e.g. lack of access to education and health care by hunters and herders);
    • the particularities of culture, identity, economy and territoriality that link hunting and herding peoples to their home environments in deserts and forests (e.g. nomadism, diet, knowledge systems);
    • some indigenous peoples, such as the San and Pygmy peoples are physically distinct, which makes them subject to specific forms of discrimination."
