    Introduction
    Deep prejudice against people with HIV/AIDS in India leads to patterns of discrimination and maltreatment even in the hospitals they depend on for treatment and care. Dr. Glory Alexander resolves to end medical discrimination against HIV/AIDS patients by educating hospital staff and the patients themselves, using her successes as a lever to push for tolerance in all spheres of Indian life.
