Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)
Lack of information on Hiv/Aids in the native language Setswana or the misunderstanding of available information can facilitate incorrect use of the virus drugs for instance, therefore I am trying to assess Wikipedia's utility on Botswana healthcare facilities,evaluate, update, and translate HIV/AIDS Wikipedia articles using Batswana medical students, residents, HIV experts, faculty, and librarians. If we can successfully create awareness and enthusiasm surrounding Wikipedia article evaluation, we can continue Wikipedia article editing, thereby enhancing the Botswana and Africa-specific Wikipedia coverage as well as increasing the article translations.
