HIV dance

Accompanied by drummers, a young woman dances in the streets of Sathangudi, a rural Indian village, to invite residents to a play about HIV and AIDS. The group is sponsored by the Center for Research and Rehabilitation of Infants and Females (CRIF)--based in Madurai, Tamil Nadu--which conducts advocacy and education on HIV and AIDS. CRIF receives support from United Methodist Women Mission Giving.

Accompanied by drummers, a young woman dances in the streets of Sathangudi, a rural southern Indian village, to invite residents to a play about HIV and AIDS. She displays the enthusiasm that many young people bring to the task of raising awareness of the virus and how to avoid it. Her group is sponsored by the Center for Research and Rehabilitation of Infants and Females (CRIF), a Madurai-based group which conducts advocacy and education on HIV and AIDS. CRIF receives support from United Methodist Women Mission Giving. This is the third in my month-long series of images which reflect a side of HIV and AIDS we too often don't see.
