Today, Aids is the fourth biggest killer in the world. An estimated 40m people are living with HIV and every day some 14,000 people are infected.

We follow six HIV-positive people, each of them on the same day, in six different parts of the world.

The film explores how each character is engaged in a constant battle against stigma and prejudice in their attempts to live a normal life.

Living Positive discovers what it really means to live with one of the most feared viruses on earth.

If you think you know all there is to know about HIV and Aids, think again.

Living Positive was broadcast on Thursday, 1 December, 2005 at 2100 GMT on BBC Two.

A debate featuring the six people filmed for the programme was broadcast on Friday, 2 December, 2005 on BBC Four at 1900 GMT.
