#1
MUMBAI: From the time it was first diagnosed 35 years ago, HIV has infected 76 million people and claimed 35 million lives – including 1.8 million people in 2016 alone. But more than a fatal disease, it’s the grave social stigma associated with HIV/AIDS that makes it difficult for people to confront the actual truth behind it.

This year, Sony BBC Earth celebrates World AIDS Day, with an eye-opening series ‘Truth About HIV’ on 1 December at 8 pm that will help raise awareness levels about the disease.

Narrated by a renowned doctor and TV presenter Chris Van Tulleken, the series looks at bursting several myths and misconceptions still associated with the disease such as “HIV and AIDS are one and the same”, “HIV diagnosis is as good as a death sentence”, “HIV is contracted by touch”.

Chris interviews scientists who are front-lining the war against HIV to answer questions like, is there a cure for AIDS? What is the life expectancy for an HIV+ person? Can an HIV infected person have children? etc.

From a young HIV+ mother who is challenging perceptions about the disease, to the man who was unexpectedly cured after a bone marrow transplant, Truth About HIV brings to light the pioneering approaches in the field of science and medicine to eradicate this disease for good.
