WORLD AIDS DAY

Last night I watched a film called Transit on MTV and as you may have guessed it was about how easily HIV/AIDS can spread. This was a great 90 minute film which touched on the cross-cultural issues of it's four main characters over four different continents, their relationships as well as the HIV/AIDS both in the developing and developed world.




The movie was made in 2005 as part of MTV's Staying Alive campaign, one which it still maintains today.

The Staying Alive website has several great programs that deal with the issue of HIV/AIDS especially among young people in the developing world where there are high infection rates. I'd recommend visiting the site to watch the Xpress 2007 three part series as well as the World Aids Day site for information.
