The Positive Effect
The Positive Effect connects the lived experience of those both managing and preventing HIV with facts and evidence to correct the misinformation and fear that underlies and perpetuates stigma. The website includes stories (film, audio and written), erasing stigma, testing for everyone, care and prevention; and there's' a blog.
The Positive Effect is collaboratively designed by scientists, medical experts, community leaders and people with living with HIV in Canada. It promotes authentic, ongoing and high-energy engagement across Canada of those dedicated to wiping out HIV stigma, which impedes testing, prevention efforts, and contributes to further health inequities across communities.
Filmed in Toronto, Canada, Three Flying Piglets, part of the Gay Men's Health Collective, is immensely proud to have contributed to the Positive Effect - making a series of short films about HIV Peer Researchers living with HIV, their work and HIV stigma.
