I Am Positif
I Am Positif is an initiative to help end stigma and discrimination related to HIV/AIDS in Tanah Papua, Indonesia. Many improvements have been made in the region but the majority of the public in Tanah Papua still perceives HIV/AIDS to mean suffering, dishonour, and death. People often neglect taking preventive measures and many already diagnosed with HIV avoid seeking lifesaving treatments. Fear of abuse, persecution and ostracism from family members and the community have made secrecy and denial the primary concern over seeking care. I Am Positif utilises portraiture, in-depth interviews, and video to profile 7 incredible individuals who are living healthy and productively with HIV.
