INSPIRING STORIES FROM PEOPLE LIVING WITH HIV
Listening to the voices of people living with HIV - sharing and amplifying their aspirations and unmet needs - is an important step in ViiV Healthcare’s ambition to make HIV a smaller part of people’s lives. The Positive Perspectives study, sponsored by ViiV Healthcare and developed in collaboration with an international, multi-disciplinary Advisory Committee, explores these same topics. Results from the Positive Perspectives study, along with the videos below featuring people living with HIV, indicate that open dialogue with healthcare providers about challenges with HIV care and treatment may help improve some aspects of quality of life beyond viral suppression.1 Watch the videos below to learn from Tom, Moritz, Helen and Xiana and visit our PLHIV section to see even more stories from people living with HIV.
