I didn't watch this movie, but apparently a lot of people did. Girl, Positive was broadcast on the Lifetime channel, but if you missed it you can download it at iTunes.

Here's a synopsis from the website http://www.lifetimetv.com/movies/originals/girlpositive.php
quote:
Seventeen-year-old Rachel is as stunned as anyone when word spreads through her upper-middle-class community that Jason, a popular athlete who recently died, was an IV drug user. But it's the next bomb that really hits home: Jason, a former intimate partner, may have been HIV positive. Wanting to learn more about HIV, Rachel is urged to visit the local AIDS clinic by a substitute teacher, Sarah, but is too scared to face up to the possibility that she may be infected. So Rachel confides her fears to Sarah, who reveals that she has been secretly living with HIV for more than seven years. Unfortunately, secrets have a way of getting out — and both women soon learn that gossip, like disease, can spread swiftly.

Directed by Peter Werner
Screenplay written by Nancey Silvers
Produced by von Zerneck/Sertner Films
Executive-produced by Bob Sertner, Frank von Zerneck and Nancey Silvers
