Mpho’s Legacy of Hope is an educational piece intended to help start a conversation about HIV/AIDS. It was written by Dr. Wyntrea Cunningham, a practicing obstetrician/gynecologist who spent time in Botswana, Africa engaging in pediatric HIV/AIDS research. The book tells the story of a young boy who is the best soccer player on the team, who also helps the team win the soccer championship. His teammates and coach are unaware of his HIV status so after their game he spends the afternoon disclosing his status, and addressing and dispelling the myths associated with HIV. The book is written on a 3rd grade reading level, and it allows parents and adults in general to open a dialogue about not just HIV, but any health issue. The characters in the book have been given Setswanan names in honor of the native language spoken in Botswana, Africa, the main site of Dr. Cunningham’s pediatric HIV/AIDS research. After reading this book, we hope readers gain a better understanding of HIV/AIDS, and go on to educate others about the disease in an effort to help reduce the stigma surrounding HIV. It is this stigma that creates such a barrier that limits our ability to eradicate the spread of HIV. Purchase your copy of Mpho’s Legacy of Hope today, and help us continue the conversation.
