UNDP Thailand has released a new documentary which tells the story of Apiwat, a man living with HIV. It’s the extraordinary story of an ordinary man, who goes through difficult personal trials—lost love, learning to live with stigma and discrimination—and through a journey to hope, as a leader in Thailand’s HIV/AIDS community. The film also documents the successful partnership between UNDP and the Royal Thai Police, who have begun training as many as 10,000 junior cadets per year through a human-rights based curriculum designed to discourage stigma and discrimination among officers and change old attitudes about people living with HIV.
