These are our stories. We are sharing them with you because we believe that perceptions around HIV must change, so that we can lead healthy lives and be treated with dignity and respect.
Whether you are someone living with HIV, a researcher, politician, healthcare worker, commissioner, or simply stumbled across this report, we hope that these stories will resonate with you and change your perceptions of HIV.
To commemorate World AIDS Day 2019 and celebrate how far we have come, Positively UK, National AIDS Trust (NAT) and Public Health England are launching a new video as part of the Changing Perception campaign to let people know that HIV has changed!
Thanks to our amazing participants, our exceptional film-maker, Kelvin Brown.
