World AIDS Day - 1 December 2014
Many of those affected are not able to tell their own stories. In this special ILO video series, set to launch on World AIDS Day (1 December), actors Kavi Ladnier, Ratidzo Mambo, and Junes Zahdi speak for them.
Actress Kavi Ladnier shares the story of Seema who only learned about the importance of early HIV testing when her son became gravely ill.
Forced to reveal her HIV status at work, Gloria’s story – as told by actress Ratidzo Mambo - is one of courage.
Actor Junes Zahdi introduces Khaled who stands to lose the only place he’s ever called home because of his HIV status.
Getting to Zero at work
Half of all people living with HIV globally, do not know their status, thus preventing them from accessing treatment. The VCT@WORK initiative is part of the ILO’s efforts to enable workers to know their HIV status and seek treatment, if necessary.
