Joining Forces – Surviving Voices

Every story has a voice. The history of the HIV/AIDS pandemic is filled with the challenge of remembering and learning from these stories, our stories. It is also about finding and empowering our voices.

There were times even hearing or discussing Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome gave me an uneasiness that could still darken my mood with trepidation.
