Living Positive: HIV Support Group

Season 6 Episode 1

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 10:00pm

“Accepting your status isn’t easy”

“….it got me down for a while because I couldn’t understand at that time. I did not know where to go, what to do, but when I realised there is a support group for people like me I joined the support group”

Along with the ill health and the threat of a fast approaching death, the HIV virus also comes with stigma and shame. Six South Africans living with the disease talk about the support, love and upliftment they find in their HIV support group.
