the RED badges of courage 006
These children sit together in a crowded outdoor class room of more than 50 students. All are wearing the red badges. The head, Mr. Kitwana said that his school had a vast population of children who were HIV+. He suspects that almost half of his student body of 3600 were carrying the virus but not tested because their family refused to allow them to be accessed; they were frightened of the stigma.
