Age, sex and HIV: Older women’s stories

Age, sex and HIV: Older women’s stories from HelpAge International on Vimeo.

This animated film highlights the impact of HIV on older women, through the experiences of three older women living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa.

Older women living with HIV face discrimination based on their age, sex, HIV status and wealth. They are denied information and services, suffer violence and are prevented from earning a living.

For this to change, we must ensure that older people are included in HIV statistics, ensure funding supports them and fight for laws that protect their rights.
