Volume 8- My Experience

I am a 39 year old Zimbabwean African woman who arrived in England in 1998. I was diagnosed in 1999 and started treatment, which is going well.

I have an undetectable viral load and I received good counselling when I was diagnosed that reassured me I wasn’t going to die. In 2005 I had a son who was born negative and he is healthy and happy.

I would urge people to get help and support, and please contact me if you would like to know more.
