VNR: Co-operation that counts - Innovative Approaches to AIDS Prevention
In the run-up to the AIDS 2006 – “Time to Deliver” Conference which will take place in Toronto, Canada, from 13 to 18 August 2006, the TV report " Innovative approaches to AIDS prevention" presents innovative projects in the field of AIDS prevention, in India and Burkina Faso.
Participants from around the globe will gather in Toronto for the conference, which will focus on the promises and progress made to scale-up AIDS treatment, care and prevention. The European Commission is a major contributor to the Global Fund against HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis.
The film tells the story of two projects, both supported by the European Commission for their innovative approach to AIDS prevention: a Médecins du Monde (MdM) project in Burkina Faso, and an Oxfam project in India. In Burkina Faso, we follow the daily work of MdM educators who work with high-risk groups such as sex workers in the capital city Ouagadougou. In India, we follow Rajiv Dua, who is in charge of Oxfam projects in the fight against and prevention of AIDS in remote communities such as Bharatpur in Rajasthan. The film shows how local educators build bridges in everyday life with young people and women who are slowly becoming more open to discussion in communities where AIDS and sex education are still taboo.
