What's Up Africa: Satirist fights stigma with HIV-positive beauty queens

Tuesday was World Aids Day and in the three decades since HIV - the virus that causes the disease - was identified, there have been many advances in medical treatments.

But not in the stigmatising attitudes towards HIV-positive people.

In Uganda, a group of young men and women are aiming to change all that. Satirist Ikenna Azuike went to meet them in Kampala.

Satire series What's Up Africa is a BBC and RNW Media co-production.

It's broadcast on Wednesdays and Fridays on Focus on Africa on BBC World News & partner stations across Africa from 1730GMT.
