MTV's Staying Alive Marks Ten Years of Empowering Young People in Their Fight against HIV and AIDS
Date:11/10/2008

ld AIDS Day, the moving documentary -- The Diary of Kelly Rowland -- chronicles Rowland's recent travels with the Staying Alive Foundation to visit its heroic grantees in South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania and the USA. This one-hour documentary records Rowland's first-hand experiences with young people affected by HIV/AIDS. It features intimate discussions between Rowland and these young adults about how they have overcome harrowing HIV/AIDS related experiences to fight and protect others in their communities from getting infected.

While in Kenya, where young girls are 5 to 6 times more vulnerable to HIV infection than boys their own age, Rowland gets tested for HIV. Her efforts are to break down the stigmas associated with the disease and to encourage youth globally to step-up and know their status. Some of the inspirational people Rowland encounters throughout her journey include: a former sex worker in the heart of Tanzania's red-light district Hyena Square, a group of people who are HIV+ making a difference by educating children in a Kenyan school and a young American woman who lost her mother to AIDS. It ultimately provides an up-close and personal introduction to some remarkable and incredibly courageous young people, young people who have been at the heart of the Staying Alive campaign.

Chairman and CEO of MTV Networks International, Bill Roedy, commented, "The poignant documentary highlights Kelly's unrelenting commitment to raising awareness of HIV/AIDS. She has fully embraced her role as Staying Alive Ambassador and the responsibilities that go along with it -- the documentary is testament to her dedication, passion and yearning to do more. In her quest to reduce the stigma associated with the epidemic, Kelly has upped the ante by getting tested herself -- we are proud and honoured to have her as our exemplary Ambassador especially in this landmark 10th year."
