Students in Renfrewshire, Scotland, soon will attend special classes in their schools that will include four videos produced by the Always Hear campaign, launched by Waverly Care and financed by the government. The AIDS charity hopes to give students a better understanding of the reality of living with HIV through the videos, each of which tells the story of an HIV-positive individual. Waverly Care launched the Always Hear campaign after a survey by the National AIDS Trust demonstrated that 85 percent of parents thought that children should be educated about HIV in secondary schools. Currently, approximately 6,000 HIV-positive individuals live in Scotland, with the number growing. For further information on the Always Hear campaign, visit www.hivalwayshear.org.
