Personal stories

The personal stories of people living with HIV are important. Stories that show how people survive and thrive with HIV break down stigma about the virus and can also support and inspire others who have been recently diagnosed with HIV, or are facing new challenges as their lives change.

This section of the website links to a variety of personal stories that AFAO has published over the years. Please keep in mind that while the stories remain ageless, some factual information about treatments or prevention may be out of date.

Stories from people living with HIV




Most of these stories were originally published in HIV Australia, AFAO's flagship publication.
