Hey Buddy Films

The MTV HIV Diaries took Hey Buddy TV to three different parts of the world to film individuals for whom the stigma of getting tested for HIV was a traumatic and socially pressurised practice.

The film aimed to show how for young people in India, Jamaica and Ghana taking a test is not routine and although the dangers are well known, it is not a straightforward choice. With unprecedented access into clinics and homes this one off documentary takes you on a journey of dramatic understanding as our three participants take their first ever HIV tests.
