Description

The city of Kaliningrad is among the worst AIDS affected in Russia. Spread initially by drug users, the virus is now sexually transmitted. Nearly one in every 100 people in the region is thought to have HIV. But 3-year-old Svieta, born with foetal alcohol syndrome, requires more than HIV medication. In this extremely powerful film we see that she may need care for the rest of her life.

This is also available as part of a 7 x 22-minute series of films made for the BBC.
