This is a trailer to the film Chiedza's song which looks at the struggles of adolescents growing up with HIV in Zimbabwe. It's a film by Rashida Ferrand, Tom Gibb and Joe Njagu. Supported by the Wellcome Trust. With advances in treatment and medication, increasing numbers of HIV-infected children are reaching adolescence globally. There is a lack of awareness about the complex socio-cultural issues these children face and many are stigmatised and isolated. Dr Rashida Ferrand (Department of Clinical Research) an HIV clinical specialist and epidemiologist, has worked with young people from Harare, their families and healthcare workers to develop a film based on their real-life experiences with film makers Tom Gibbs and Joe Njagu. Filmed on location in Zimbabwe, "Chiedza's Song" is based on a true story and was made in collaboration with "Together as One"- a Harare-based youth group that aims to create awareness about HIV and adolescent health issues among communities through drama.
