The reality

Before watching the videos below, you will work in 3 groups to familiarize yourselves with the different types of medication available to treat HIV or possible exposure to HIV.

Each group will use one of these online factsheets to find out more, then present their findings to the rest of the class.

After your class presentations, watch the following interviews. As you watch, try to identify the points that you think are the most important ones to know about the different medication available to treat HIV.

These interviews are with people living with HIV explaining their different perspectives on and attitudes to taking daily medication.
