Norwegian artists are making use of cartoons to combat stigmatization and discrimination against people with HIV. The cartoon were drawn in connection with the AIDS conference Young Leaders Summit II at the initiative of Their Royal Highnesses The Crown Princess and The Crown Prince.

The cartoons were drawn by Siri Pettersen, Ingalill Røsberg, Mads Eriksen and Madeleine Bertelsen.

The summit was held on 23-25 June at Losby Manor outside Oslo, and was attended by 28 young leaders from all over the world. Young people are at particular risk of contracting HIV. Youth leadership is therefore essential to HIV and AIDS-related activities.

Throughout the summit, the young leaders shared their experiences and ideas on YouTube, Twitter, Flickr, Facebook and blogs.
