This project set out to help young people affected by HIV to find their voices and to provide them with a platform from which to speak not only in their home countries, but also internationally. At the heart of the project, was the participation of a team of six young people, aged 7 to 17, from the United Kingdom, Uganda and Mexico. These young people were the first ever to participate in an International AIDS Conference. They interviewed key participants and asked direct questions about how they will support HIV-affected children
