"Kids Living with Slim" screens at One Love Conference

One Love is a conference for young people living with HIV from all over New England. The screening was extremely emotional for many because the issues facing the children in Africa are so similar to the issues they face: stigma, the daily drug regimen, disclosing to friends and partners, worries about the future. Several participants said their attitudes toward their status has changed since watching the film. One young woman, who admitted not following her daily drug regimen, said that watching the African children take their drugs faithfully has convinced her to take her drugs every day.
