About Video

This video tells the story of a young man and his lover. He really likes his partner and although he knows he should get tested he worries about what will happen to his relationship if the test comes out positive. The VIP Guide provides him with support and reassurance that he can still keep what matters to him (love) and knowing his HIV status can’t take that from him.


Reaching Impact, Saturation, and Epidemic Control (RISE) is a 5-year global project funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). RISE works with countries to achieve a shared vision of attaining and maintaining epidemic control, with stronger local partners capable of managing and achieving results through sustainable, self-reliant, and resilient health systems. RISE’s contributions to this work will lead to fewer new HIV infections, decreased HIV-related morbidity and mortality, and increased quality of life for people living with HIV. RISE is led by Jhpiego, together with consortium partners ICAP, ANOVA Health Institute, Management Sciences for Health , BAO Systems, JHU Center for Public Health and Human Rights and Mann Global Health. To learn more about the RISE project, visit us at www.jhpiego.org/RISE
