Folketingets Tværpolitiske Netværk for Seksuel og Reproduktiv Sundhed og Rettigheder har af Population Action International fået lov til at lægge filmen Abstaining from Reality til download her på siden.
Filmed in Kenya and Uganda, this 9-minute documentary provides a snapshot of the Bush administration’s abstinence-only approach to HIV prevention as part of its global HIV/AIDS assistance. Abstaining from Reality examines how these ideologically-driven programs are actually endangering the lives of the people they're supposed to be protecting. This policy is disconnected from the reality of the lives of women and young people, who are disproportionately affected by the epidemic.
The film urges a balanced, comprehensive approach to preventing HIV infections by providing full and accurate information and a range of services that empower individuals to make informed decisions.
