With the growth of social media throughout the world, young people no longer need to suffer the stigma of HIV/Aids in isolation. Web sites and Facebook pages etc. allow young people to talk openly about the issues they face.
Young people from Devon get connected in KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. Two websites from Devon and SA give a voice to young people facing the stigma of being HIV positive. Lets Talk.
The Eddystone Trust is an independent organisation providing information and support for anyone affected by HIV across South West England. Some services also relate to wider sexual health.
This says it all.
This campaign from the South African National Aids Council has a message that applies to everyone and everywhere. Here in Devon as well as South Africa. Watch the video’s on the site to learn more.
