dc.description.abstract HIV, Human Immunodeficiency Virus, affects over one million people nationwide. Of those one million people, nearly one in five have not been diagnosed cmd treated with for the virus. As much of a concern as this should be, many people, like myself, are not properly educated about HIV and the subsequent stage of AIDS, Auto Immune Deficiency Syndrome. The rate of HIV infection has spread most rapidly in this country among African-American women. Brothers United is a nonprofit organization based in Indianapolis that provides outreach and education in hopes of one day eliminating HIV/AIDS. The video of this project corrects some common misconceptions about the virus, most importantly how it is contracted and whom it can affect. One advocate from Brothers United also shares their personal journey in living with HIV and introduces the audience to the testing process. My goal with this project is to educate about HIV/AIDS and the misconceptions that have created the social stigma surrounding the virus. This education will hopefully provide hope for anyone whose life has been affected by the disease.
