“Hey baby, what you gonna do? I’ve got a fear that I’m going to lose you.”
Tragically, around the world, stigma remains prevalent towards people living with HIV. These songs tell of the real hopes, fears and experiences of young people living with HIV.

This project was funded by the Mercury Phoenix Trust. The animated videos were developed in collaboration with Shado.
