About

In the African nation of Malawi, one in three sexually active adults is HIV positive. People are dying of AIDS at an alarming rate, yet almost no one talks about it: this culture of silence is maintained by a population that fears the social stigma of the disease. Despite this, a growing coalition of activists -- often openly HIV positive individuals -- use education to fight the shame and ignorance that have allowed AIDS to spread. By focusing on one small country, DYING IN SILENCE takes an intimate, personal look at a disease that does not just threaten to decimate an isolated region, but the entire planet.
