Edmund Rice Global HIV Campaign

ERHIV

In honour of Mandela Day, The Advocacy Group of Edmund Rice Education Beyond Borders launched their Global HIV Campaign; where youth from across the world will spend the next few months advocating for an end to HIV stigma, and for equal access to healthcare.

As a member of this group, The Edmund Rice Justice Desk (ERJD) filmed a video to launch the campaign across the globe. The video introduces you to two phenomenal South Africans, fighting against HIV/Aids stigma and the unequal accessibility of health-care in many African countries.

ERJD In-Reach student Loyiso, was the face of the video, sharing his own struggles as an HIV+ youth living in a township. Loyiso has also been video conference calling schools and network people in different parts of the world, answering questions and encouraging others to join the campaign.
