Today’s Video: Prevention (revisited)

Yesterday on World AIDS Day we featured a video on the members of an El Salvadoran charity determined to prevent the spread of AIDS among the LGBT population. In Chile another form of prevention has taken place albeit in a ruthless manner. In the video report from Al Jazeera below, several HIV-positive women alleged that they were forcibly sterilized after giving birth. The women have taken their case to an Organization of American States-related judicial body, but it will be very difficult to erase the mental and physical scars these women have.
