CAIRO: A play titled “Disease is Not a Charge” about real stories of patients living with AIDS in Egypt will be hosted Tuesday at 8 p.m. at Nasbiyan Studio in the Jesuit Theater in Faggala, Cairo.
The show will include ten real stories of HIV/AIDS patients in Egypt showing their suffering in the form of theatrical storytelling.
The show is the first event of the newly launched “Adapting” campaign organized by graduates of the Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies sessions.
The play aims to remove the societal stigma against patients living with the virus due to cultural heritage and lack of information for health sector workers about contraction and transmission of the disease. The show also hopes to raise public awareness of the virus.
Jesuit Theater on June 10 at 8 p.m.
Address: 15 El Mahrany St., Downtown Cairo
