It's Not Easy. Africa's first full-length drama on AIDS
" 'I don't want any of you to suffer like we have. Don't ever believe you are safe. Learn the facts about AIDS.' These are the words of Suna, the young African business executive in It's Not Easy. Suna and his wife Serra are stunned to learn their infant son is infected with the HIV virus. Suna has ignored warnings about AIDS, and he and his family have become infected. He must face the imminent deaths of Serra and his child, as well as his own. But Suna turns his despair into hope and determination for those around him. It's Not Easy is a dramatic tale told to save lives through awareness and education.""Uganda has one of the highest HIV infection rates in Africa. Ugandan health officials estimate that 1,000,000 Ugandans may already be infected with HIV. It's Not Easy clarifies basic facts about HIV/AIDS, promotes acceptance of people with AIDS in the workplace and encourages safer sexual behavior. The film is the first-ever AIDS drama produced in Africa and uses Ugandan actors in an accurate cultural setting to reinforce responsible behavior.""It's Not Easy was co-produced by the Federation of Uganda Employers and the Experiment in International Living/Uganda with Uganda Television. The film was made possible by funding from USAID/Kampala and technical assistance from AIDSCOM, the AIDS Public Health Communication Project of USAID, Academy for Educational Development, and the Johns Hopkins University."
