David Rochkind and Jens Erik Gould are the reporters behind the project "The Forgotten: HIV and the Garifuna of Honduras." The Garifuna people have historically been marginalized in Honduras and currently face one of the highest HIV rates in the Western Hemisphere. Their culture and language are in jeopardy as the disease ravages the community. But traditional music and dance are being used to help raise awareness about the epidemic, and to challenge the stigma and discrimination associated with it.
