Raising HIV/AIDS Awareness: Still Going Strong

"One of the biggest things I have had to learn as a woman with HIV is that I am still strong, still empowering, and people will still love me." – Ze (H-I-V.net Community Advocate)

This June, we celebrate the resiliency, pride, and advocacy that make this community so strong. Living with HIV/AIDS is not easy. Through our interactions, we have seen how important it is to raise awareness that this community has come so far. Despite the stigma and barriers they continue to face, people living with HIV are still going strong.
