Embrace diversity in school

Say no to HIV-related stigma and other forms of discrimination

What challenges does an HIV-positive student face at school? What other forms of prejudice and associated intolerance are students encountering? This four-minute video, produced by UNESCO and supported by UNAIDS, gathers testimonies from young people who have suffered bullying and discrimination in the school environment because of who they are. The video brings to light the real-life experiences of HIV-positive, gay, lesbian, overweight and pregnant students and helps break the silence often surrounding these issues. The video is accompanied by a pedagogical guide and hopes to generate debate about these issues and promote respect for diversity in schools.
