Mbabane Swaziland Art
When you visit Swaziland, you will find local men and women crafting braided baskets. Most market stalls feature beautifully patterned baskets woven from grass and sisal and dyed with natural dyes. Stone sculptures of strong cultural significance can be bought at the handicraft market as well as soapstone carvings.
The SNTC has identified rock paintings attributed to the San, the Bushmen, also known as the Bushmen of Swaziland, a group of indigenous peoples from the east of the country. Some engravings have also been carved in stone, but none have been preserved in Swziland. The engraving is in the South African National Museum in Mpumalanga and in a museum in Mbabane.
The winged figure of Nsangwini is overcome by an animal that is so integrated into the surrounding group that it cannot be a donkey in this context. The animal is the same size and shape as the painted rock face, and there is no evidence that the animal was placed as far away from the other surrounding groups as it is painted. Southern African rock art is permeated by more familiar motifs, and although it fades, it may be worth putting it in the painting category.
This study may be part of a larger effort to prevent and control attrition in Swaziland. Share more information about ART, including its benefits and side effects, with the general population and women's health facilities.
The following extract is taken from the information provided by John Masson in his book "The Art of Rock Art in Swaziland." With one exception, the rock art of Swziland is part of a wide range of cultural beliefs and rituals that are expressed on free-standing rock walls. The images are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, shapes and structures and in many cases also in textures and colors.
A recurring image is the mythical woman, who appears in various forms, but is unmistakably depicted as a woman with raised arms and legs spread. Swaziland has a dual monarchy, with the king seen as the father, the queen as the mother.
The country has made great progress in the fight against HIV, including the expansion to people with CD4 + 350 cells / mm3 in 2010. Following a recent change in national guidelines in Swaziland, the number of patients enrolled in the primary population is expected to be lower than forecast due to changes in the thresholds for GRT discharge.
While Option B significantly increases the likelihood that a woman will start lifelong GRT, it becomes all the more important to involve the community, especially men, in the importance of lifelong GRT to ensure that women receive support in initiating and implementing GRT. Women may need additional counseling to have a support structure that allows disclosure and is informed about HIV and GRT. LTFU may reduce the opportunity for women to receive additional counseling sessions before initiating GRT for newly diagnosed women. Women who may have known their HIV status before or expected to be HIV positive themselves may need fewer counseling sessions, while those who have initiated GRT but have difficulty accepting their new HIV status and need to initiate GRT may need more sessions. Some women do not need additional counseling because they have support structures that allow or know HIV or GRT.
Concerns and fears related to ART will continue to be addressed directly through improved counselling and communication. It is time to insist that everyone has early access to GRT, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

The Nsangwini Rock Art Shelter is one of two public places and the largest in the country. The shelter has a picture of land and behaved like a blue wildebeest, which is a unique painting from Swaziland and the only one of its kind in South Africa.
Health workers collected data from individual study participants at each location using a paper-based data collection form. This data was collected in accordance with existing procedures of the Swaziland Ministry of Health. This allows health workers to collect data for each individual and from each participant in the study.
Based on this research, this is the first study to use national data that includes all medical facilities in Swaziland. If you look at the 110 institutions that provide GRT services across Swaziland, you can safely extrapolate the results to the entire national GRT programme.
