Today, living with HIV is a very different experience from just ten years ago. Advances in prevention, treatment and care mean that people living with HIV and on effective treatment have a near-normal life expectancy.1 Despite this progress, people living with HIV continue to face unique challenges that affect their quality of life every day. Stigma remains a stubbornly persistent threat to the health and well-being of many people living with HIV and can often impact their ability to consistently access life-saving treatments and social support systems.2 In the battle to challenge the negative assumptions about HIV, sharing the true picture and experiences of people living with HIV is key.
Uniting Together: 5 influencers, 5 lived experiences, 1 shared mission
In the battle to challenge the negative assumptions about HIV, we believe that sharing the true picture and experiences of people living with HIV is key to dismantling stigma.
In June 2023, we celebrated the third year of the HIV in View campaign by convening a panel of five advocates and thought leaders living with HIV from across the globe, in support of a shared goal: to make HIV stigma a thing of the past.
In collaboration with the HIV in View partners, we are helping to share community voices and dispel myths about HIV to achieve our mission of leaving no person living with HIV behind.
