Sharing HIV Stigma Through Comics
40 children born to HIV positive parents have shared the stigma the comes with being in that position in India through comic strips. Some of these strips are being shared and displayed by the Red Ribbon Express (RRE). The comics were created at a workshop by World Comics India and was supported by Unicef, the workshop was held at the Nehru Yuva Kendra.
Parents are often thrown out of their villages forcing hardship on the families and children and children who themselves are HIV positive are driven from their jobs.
The project not only creates awareness but also allowed the children to escape from their harsh reality.
