Body maps: 2002&2012

Nondumiso Hlwele displays some of her body mapping artworks with Jane Solomon at a Paediatric HIV Symposium presented by the Lentegeur Hospital Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service that took place in November 13-14/2014. The symposium brought together scholars, health care professionals, and interested individuals. A number of topics and strategic tools to assist the management of the mental health and neurocognitive problems experienced by HIV infected children and adolescents were discussed. The mental health and scholastic problems that these children suffer were highlighted, as this is an aspect of paediatric HIV which is often neglected.

This exhibition of the works shows a holistic approach to HIV therapies.
