The photos below are from the exhibit Photo-Voice: HIV and AIDS Education for Young People in Africa, presented by UNESCO and the Virginio Bruni Tedeschi Foundation. The photos in Photo-Voice were taken by young people, parents and teachers from Angola, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland.
The photographers focused on two themes: students and teachers affected by HIV and AIDS, and young people, sexuality and HIV.
Here are a few of the photos, along with captions written by the photographer who took each picture. (Photos are courtesy of UNESCO.)
