Virtual reality and SA's quest for happier nurses

In South Africa, public health nurses have a tendency to act more like a parent than a nurse when teenage girls visit the clinic to be tested for HIV, ask for birth control or get antiretroviral treatment. To change this reputation and behavior, Makhulu Media and the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation collaborated to make a virtual reality film that shows the nurses how their behavior is often interpreted by the patient.
