Description

Formerly a problem confined mainly to the more prosperous southern regions of Brazil, AIDS has made its way to the northern city of Salvador. However, although Brazil has in place the most advanced HIV treatment programme in the developing world, 14-year-old Daiane still feels unsafe revealing that she has the virus. Her mother, also infected, has fought to get her the best medication available.
