Information & Knowledge Management in Africa


  • Kondwani Wella


I am a PhD student at the University of Sheffield, Information School and I come from Malawi. I am a librarian for Kamuzu College of Nursing, University of Malawi. My PhD topic is “Experiencing HIV and AIDS information: a phenomenological study of serodiscordant couples in Malawi.” As a PhD student from Africa studying in the United Kingdom it was important for me to go back and interact with colleagues.

The Standing Conference of Eastern, Central and Southern Africa Library and Information Associations (SCECSAL) was a great opportunity to interact with big names in the library and information profession in Africa. With support from UKeiG’s student conference grant I was able to attend the 2014 edition of the conference.
