The stories that the patients gave inspired him to write the script and concept for Kisah Carlo. To develop it further, Andri did a lot of research about HIV/AIDS and also talked to the patients and people who work at Ruang Carlo. Three doctors at St. Carolus also helped him by supervising the writing.
The only intention of Ruang Carlo and its whole team is to spread awareness, care and education about HIV/AIDS. We hope that with the right information, people can prevent getting infected with the HIV virus and those who already are infected can get proper medication and treatment
The story centers on the dynamics of life in Ruang Carlo – each episode focuses on a different character. It's about the workers there; the doctors, nurses, nuns and counselors, as well as the patients. The new TV series focuses on their struggles, challenges and hopes. Very symbolically, “Kisah Carlo” will premiere on December 1st, World AIDS Day. A new episode – in Indonesian with English subtitles – will then be released once every two weeks.
