To mark World AIDS Day, UNESCO is hosting the avant premier of the film "It Happened to Me" in the presence of the director, Chris Idihero. Funded by UNESCO within the framework of the project "Strengthening youth and youth-led NGO's involvement with family life and HIV education in Nigeria using culturally appropriate strategies”, this 16-minute short was produced in close consultation with the UNESCO Office in Abuja, medical and social workers and various NGOs in Nigeria. Written by Amaka Igwe, the film presents the situation of a group of young people facing the HIV-AIDS pandemic from a Nigerian perspective.
