Time lapse video of woman with HIV/AIDS

I’ve recently come across a very powerful video advertisement from the Topsy Foundation which was one of the winners at TED’s “Ad’s Worth Spreading” contest. It shows a reverse time lapse video of a woman with HIV/AIDS after HIV antiretroviral drug therapy.

This particular video does a great job (with a lovely twist at the end) at showing the effectiveness of HIV antiretroviral drugs (ARVs). There’s also a followup video you can view that checks in on the woman (Selinah) as well as chatting with the folks behind the video.

    Excellent. I first saw this video as part of a TV ad campaign when I was in S Africa in April 2010, having just completed an AIDS workshop in a remote part of northern South Africa. I thought it was an amazing film of hope and demonstrates why anti-retrovirals are such an important treatment.

    Modern medicine’s best kept secret? More people need to know how well life can be supported by antiretroviral drugs.
