Changing Minds

The Changing minds is a initiative of the Tamilnadu Government to create awareness about HIV affected people and issues relating to high risk groups faced while being confronted by the Police force personnel. There were a series of frank interaction, discussion, and training sessions conducted by the members of high risk groups such as Injection Drug Users, Sex workers and Transgenders to the personnel of Law and Order enforcement agencies. The trainers were sharing their problems, issues, concerns and methods to bring about a change in attitude towards the HIV affected people.

This film is used as communication tool for bringing about a better understanding, creating empathy and evolving relevant mechanisms to create mutually comfortable working relationship between Police personnel and the members of high risk groups in a mission to control the spread of HIV epidemic.
