- ItemContextualizing Wilson’s Information Behavior model in Seeking Indigenous Information for HIV prevention among Adolescents in Secondary schools, Uganda(DigitalCommons@University of Nebraska - Lincoln, 2020) Olivia Nina, Rugambwa; Lyaka, Martha; Mutibwa, Lois NankyaEffective communication of quality health information in emergency situations is critical in curbing the spread of diseases. Health programs promoting both biomedical and indigenous representations in HIV prevention have been found to be more effective than those that ignore lay representations. Nonetheless, there is still limited documentation on indigenous information supporting health choices among adolescents in secondary schools in Uganda. Besides, the information sources from where adolescents seek this information are not clear. This paper presents Wilson’s Information Behavior model as the theoretical anchor used to understand how utilization of Indigenous information can be enhanced among adolescents for improved health choices on HIV prevention. The model was used as part of a doctoral study project to study the problem and propose a research design. The key constructs of the model adopted for the study include; context of information need, person in context, activating mechanism, and information search behavior, information processing and use. These served as the blueprints for enhancing access and use of indigenous information for HIV prevention in a school setting.
- ItemDocumenting Student Representation of Indigenous HIV/AIDS Information and Integration Into the School Curriculum(International Journal of Curriculum Development and Learning Measurement, 2021) Denis, Sekiwu; Olivia Nina, RugambwaOften times, contemporary health and epidemiological practices ignore indigenous information on HIV prevention. Colonial hegemony tends to replicate indigenous knowledge bases as primordial, superstitious, and lacking vivid scientific explanation to qualify the test for medical diagnostic study. Using an information science viewpoint and an anti-colonial discursive theory, this paper challenges the skewed discernment that it is only Western knowledge production that is considered legitimate knowledge. The authors argue that indigenous HIV/AIDS information exists and can be integrated into the curriculum to complement Western knowledge paradigms on adolescent HIV prevention.
