In 2008 Panos London worked with the African HIV Policy Network (AHPN) to help people living with HIV and facing deportation from the UK to produce their own video stories about their lives and concerns. All the participants were at risk of being removed to their country of origin where treatment for HIV was not necessarily accessible, affordable or available. Through a workshop process the participants were introduced to some scripting, photography and editing skills which they used to write, record, photograph and edit their own stories.
