in east Africa, HIV has historically been a death-sentence
Imagine you have lost your job. Your spouse has left you. Your family and friends have disowned you... all because you have contracted a disease for which there is no known cure. In East Africa, stigma cuts people off from society and prevents them from receiving life-saving care. There are currently 19.4 million people living with HIV in Sub Saharan Africa. This is the most vulnerable population in the modern world.
