Global Activism: HIV prevention program for high-risk men in sub-Saharan Africa

It's Thursday! That means it's time for our Global Activism segment. Each Thursday, we talk with a person who decided to make the world a better place.

Bartholomew Boniface Ochonye ("OBB"), a human rights and AIDS activist from Nigeria, runs the largest HIV prevention program for high-risk men in sub-Saharan Africa.

He recently returned from a comparative study tour in India where he represented Nigeria’s MARPs (most-at-risk-populations).

OBB and Lori Babcock, from Heartland Alliance International, tell us about fulfilling but sometimes dangerous work of HIV education and prevention in Nigeria.
