Read, Debate: Engage.


The landlocked Southern African nation of Botswana is considered to have one of the continent’s most stable democracies and economies. With a population of just 2 million citizens, Botswanese enjoys, much unlike many of its neighbouring nations, a relatively free of corruption government and a stable way of life, with wildlife and vast expanses of nature dominating its terrain (safari tourism is a major industry in the country). 

Botswana was once the country with the most cases of HIV Aids infections in the world, with UN figures suggesting that for adults aged 15 to 49 the prevalence rate is 25 percent in 2014. However the country has a stable healthcare system and medication is readily available across. 

Media is reported to be relatively free and diverse in the country, with journalists operating in safety as freedom of information is respected and upheld.
