June 23rd, 2015
On June 23rd the school invited a young researcher from Swaziland, Mr. Bhekumusa Wellington Lukhele from the Department of Global Health and Socio-epidemiology, Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto University and held the sixth Global Seminar. He introduced his country’s geography, history and culture, and talked about AIDS in Swaziland, one of the most serious problems in his country. Students at Takatsuki are familiar with the disease in the classrooms of P.E. and biology, but the reality shown by many actual slides had a strong impact on them. The students showed interest in circumstances surrounding AIDS in Swaziland such as the fact that anti-AIDS campaigns using Facebook and mobile phone apps are beginning to have visible effects. In the question-and-answer session, students asked several questions such as solutions to the AIDS problem and how to take a comprehensive leadership.
