Prince Harry in BBC documentary about HIV/AIDS
On the 21 May, we commemorated the International AIDS Candlelight Memorial Day remembering the lives of those lost and affected by HIV and AIDS. Many events were dedicated to that date all over the World — people with red ribbons took place in marathons (as Life4me+ team), in concerts, theaters, parks. It’s great to see people are becoming heedful to HIV-positive people; they are ready to help and to support the ones who need it.
The UK has its unique experience in the fight against HIV/AIDS. British nation suffered from the severe spread of the epidemic in the last decades of the previous century, but thanks to the efforts of British HIV-activists they changed the situation.
Yesterday, after the International AIDS Candlelight Memorial Day, BBC Channel released a documentary movie — The Truth about HIV. Thanks to people who worked on that film, if you don’t stay indifferent to the item of HIV — you should watch it. The most frequently asked question about the epidemic is discussed there. Famous HIV-activists are also mentioned in that film, some of them took part in the episodes — they told their own stories, connected with HIV, which motivates and inspires them to do so much to stop HIV spread and to fight against stigma. Prince Harry said he would like to follow his mother’s steps in HIV/AIDS work.
