The Positive Project: HIV+ Stories for the Greater Good

Monday, November 19, 2018


The Positive Project

Over 3,000 short videos featuring the stories of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS are available for free download to use in trainings, websites, and awareness-raising campaigns. The Positive Project collection can be used to "raise awareness, reduce stigma, promote prevention, encourage testing, and enhance care and quality of life."

The Positive Project videos have been around for a number of years but have found a new home at the University of California, San Francisco’s Center for AIDS Prevention Studies and Prevention Research Center. The videos are mini-interviews typically less than one minute in length. They are housed in a searchable keyword database (e.g., newly diagnosed, disclosure, adherence, advice for others) and are available in nine languages.

Considerable work has been undertaken to make the videos accessible with on-screen captioning. Videos can be downloaded by right-clicking and selecting “Save Video As” or "Download Video As".
