Aids X-perience

Overview

aidsxParticipants walk through the life of individuals who have come into contact with HIV/AIDS and, at the end, are ‘tested’ to see if they are positive. They live, in a simulated way, the realities of war, poverty, poor medical care, abusive treatment and wrong life choices.
