Abstract

This paper presents a web based system that will provide general information on the Human Immuno-Deficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) to the general public of Nigeria. We aim to contribute to bridging the digital divide by developing an HIV and AIDS public information portal adequate for edification and evaluation of the disease. The system will be considered local to Nigeria, one of the leading countries hard hit by the HIV and AIDS pandemic where the government is working hard to facilitate the provision of education and raising awareness concerning the pandemic. Whilst current national trend is bridging the digital divide and concentrating on under-privileged people in rural settlements, this alternative is for those who have access to the Internet and hence can use the system wherever they are. The proposed system will act as a platform for self-learning and appraisal of the disease and is aiming at supporting the current government initiative of providing accurate information to the general public.
