Finding out – the challenges of growing up with HIV (16 mins)

This is the first of three films looking at the challenges faced by young people living with HIV in Africa. A young filmmaker, who grew up with HIV in the UK, explores the stories of counterparts in Malawi and Zimbabwe. The film focuses on the way in which young people find out they have HIV, and the negative impact of school education designed to create fear of infection. A must see for anyone working with young people in Africa.

To find out more about how we have used art workshops as a therapeutic approach with HIV positive young people in Africa please download this document from our CurArte project.

This project was funded by PENTA Child Health Research.
