Nice level of detail, but needed quite a few wording fixes. StuRat 21:00, 2 September 2005 (UTC)

I'm not so sure, seems to ramble a bit. Nyarlathotep 09:42, 3 September 2005 (UTC)
I tried to fit in as much as I could, as we have so little on the country. -- user:zanimum
I do agree that it could have been organized a bit better, perhaps putting the events in one part and discussing general policy issues elsewhere. Simple chronological order would also work. StuRat 19:26, 3 September 2005 (UTC)

Stress[edit]

With thirteen wives, who wouldn't be stressed?

How do we reconcile taking the AIDS epidemic to heart on the one hand, and abolishing one of the few measures in place to combat it, on the other? -- Crockett 02:18, 3 September 2005 (UTC)

I never was trying to reconcile or speak against anything, just present both sides of the coin, his good and bad actions against AIDS. -- user:zanimum
I think you struck the right balance. StuRat 19:24, 3 September 2005 (UTC)
I felt it was important to point out the apparent contrast between words and deeds here. I realise that most Swazis do not have the internet, and so the Health Ministry's website has little direct bearing on them, but all the initiatives mentioned there are foreign, and include this gem about a program that former president Clinton has lent his name to: "This initiative ... aims to provide HIV/AIDS to 10,000 in developing countries." Apart from the careless typo, the point is that a LOT more than 10,000 Swazis need help, and that help needs to start from within. Thanks zanimum for writing this article, it's a very important issue. --Crockett 20:32, 3 September 2005 (UTC)
