Via Ground Truth:
“We're teaming up with @soljourno to offer two, six-week $5,000 film fellowships to cover how regions like the American South, Eastern Europe and Central Asia can apply the lessons of the fight against HIV/AIDS in Africa.
The global response to the HIV/AIDS crisis has been called one of the most effective humanitarian interventions of all time. African nations including Namibia, South Africa and Swaziland have dramatically reduced infection and death rates in recent years — and have helped provide a model for American communities like Washington D.C.’s Anacostia neighborhood on how to do the same.
And yet in regions like the American South, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, HIV/AIDS is an exploding epidemic fueled by intravenous drug use, unsafe sex and stigma. How can these parts of the world learn from others’ success?”
DEADLINE: March 17.
