    Preventing aids and malaria is very much about informing people how they are caught and how to avoid it. A health psychologist may be involved in education seminars or going to schools to talk about this and also address some of the reasons why people choose to ignore warnings. They are not miracle workers but they may be able to point a patient in the direction of natural therapies like meditation for managing pain or help with breathing techniques to help combat panic which can highten pain.
