Enhancing the health and social wellbeing of children and young people living with HIV

Video messages

In this video series, A Message to My Younger Self, young adults look back on their childhood and living with HIV. They share top tips and lessons learnt. These short video messages give you the real-life experience of what it means to grow up well with HIV.

These videos were released during our virtual Freedom 2 Be camp in summer 2020. The series was produced by Bakita Kasadha and is also available on the CHIVA YouTube channel.
