SPRING BOARD is the revival of the ’HIV buddies‘ idea. People living with HIV who have been diagnosed a long time ago, act as ’buddies’ to help newly diagnosed people come to terms with their infection. This project is a direct outcome of the German PLHIV Stigma Index.

With this video the project is calling upon people with HIV to join as buddies. The video was conceived and filmed over one workshop weekend.
