A DOUBLE STIGMA

 

 

full version (26min.)

 

HIV/AIDS is spreading at frightening speed in former Soviet Central Asian Republics like Tajikistan. Disintegration of the former society, the social insecurity and lack of perspective are major factors in this process. Was formerly alcohol the preferred way to distance oneself from this all, the proximity of Tajikistan to neighbouring heroin producing Afghanistan makes drugs readily available and dangerously cheap.
