Videos: AIDS and human rights

HIV-AIDS at The Hub

I recently found out about a fascinating site called The Hub.  Basically, this is a place where people all over the world can post videos and other media related to all kinds of human rights issues.  According to its website:

The Hub is an interactive community for human rights, where you can upload videos, audio or photos, or simply watch, comment on and share what’s on the site. You can use each media item on the site to encourage individuals to learn more and to get involved by providing direct links to resources, advocacy groups, campaigns and actions that they can take to make a difference. Additionally, you can connect with groups or create one of your own to feature your work on the Hub. Every week you can watch the three most urgent videos contributed to the Hub, and hand-picked by our editors.

The Hub is run by WITNESS, “an international human rights organization that uses video and online technologies to open the eyes of the world to human rights violations.”  Watch a 1-minute video about The Hub here.

You can search media on the site by topic: one collection deals with HIV/AIDS.
