Happy World Book Day 2018!

In Catalonia, the World Book Day (“Sant Jordi) is a special day. People go down into the streets and buy roses and books to remember the prince who, many years ago, killed the dragon and save the princess and the rest of the women of a town.

Legend has it that a red rose sprang from the blood of the dragon. And books remember the World Book Day, which is celebrated to honour William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes, who died around this date.

On the occasion of the Sant Jordi Day, IrsiCaixa researchers tell you a story about their “dragon”, HIV. Watch it here and don't forget to turn the subtitles on by clicking on the subtitles tab.
