Abstract:

In many African countries, HIV/AIDS is called "slim." In this film, seven African children, ranging in age from 6 to 17 years old, talk about what it's like to be HIV-positive. Three of the children have lost both parents and three have lost one parent to AIDS. They talk about how they felt when the first learned of their condition, how they are treated at home and at school, and how the illness affects their daily lives. All these children could grow up to live long and productive lives, but without access to anti-retroviral drugs, most of them will die needlessly.
