* Protecting the rights of HIV affected youth in Papua
* 01 Sep 2007

Papua, Indonesia’s easternmost province. A wild, untamed region. Full of hope and promise.

But as Papua develops, it faces a new threat. One that could wipe out entire communities. HIV/AIDS. Per capita, the province is worst affected in the country and young people are most vulnerable.

19 year-old Keibena was infected with HIV when she was in high school but although she was often sick, it took several years before she was diagnosed and even then she was one of the last in her family to know.

SOUNDBITE : Keibena, 19 year-old person living with hiv, “I was staying with my auntie at the time. I didn’t know about my sickness but they did. They would always separate everything, dishes, even the bucket in the bathroom. They separated that too.”

SOUNDBITE: Siti, 17 year-old student (natsound with English v/o) “the head of the class is responsible for explaining about HIV/AIDS. About the causes and the difference between HIV and AIDS”; MS & CU of students in a classroom. UNICEF also supports youth advocates who spread the message. Jenny and Deborah were given training in the basics of broadcasting and now host a weekly radio show that covers topics like HIV/AIDS. 23 year-old Deborah says she wants to spread the word because many don’t realize how dangerous HIV can be.

SOUNDBITE: Deborah, 23 year-old HIV/AIDS peer educator “we don’t really talk enough about HIV/AIDS here and there are a lot of people who just don’t want to know about it. There are a lot of young people here in Papua who engage in hi
