Generation HIV: the young Britons born HIV positive

Today is National Youth HIV AIDS Awareness Day (#NYHAAD)

National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day is a day to educate the public about the impact of HIV and AIDS on young people as well as highlight the amazing work young people are doing across the country to fight the HIV & AIDS epidemic.

Take a look at this video which tells the story of a group of young people.  They were born in the 90s, when mother-to-child transmission couldn’t be prevented, but HIV positive babies could survive. No other generation will ever live with HIV in the same way.

They tell Jenny Kleeman, a documentary film-maker and journalist who is best known for her work on Channel 4’s foreign affairs series Unreported World that their greatest threat is not HIV – but stigma.
