Carina Choice

Video Production of a Wellcome Trust funded project which took a dramatic production using high school learners as actors, to eight high schools in the Worcester area, reaching about 8 000 adolescents over 4 weeks in 2013. The production was based on a comic book previously developed by SATVI, Carina’s Choice, which describes a young mother’s decision to enrol her baby as a participant in a TB vaccine trial. The young performers were mentored and coached by UCT Drama school students. Audience members all completed pre- and post- test knowledge assessments to measure the production’s impact.

http://youtube/mnpgts5rVgQ People living with HIV are particularly vulnerable to tuberculosis. Not only are they much more likely to get it, they are also much more likely to die of the disease. One out of every four AIDS-related deaths is caused by tuberculosis. Last year, 400 000 people living with HIV died from tuberculosis. But these deaths are preventable: If people living with HIV test for tuberculosis they can get access to care and be cured.
Preventing HIV will help prevent tuberculosis.
