Film Producer Discusses How Virtual Reality Videos Could Play Role In Addressing HIV Stigma

Open Society Foundations’ “Voices”: Can a Virtual Reality Video Help Fight Anti-HIV Stigma?
Film producer Sydelle Willow Smith discusses the role of virtual reality (VR) videos in addressing HIV stigma, writing, “Projects like this are vital to help address the myths and misinformation that fuel the stigma and discrimination that prevent many people from getting an HIV test. While no single piece of media will single-handedly close the treatment gap, VR may prove to be an effective educational intervention — helping viewers walk in the shoes of those before them” (2/7).
