Living positively

Suleiman Kinarwa is the first born child in a family of three. He was raised up by his mother, a life he remembers all too well due to the multiple struggles they had to go through!

“My mother went through lots of struggles to raise my sister and I but we somehow made it through. My biggest personal struggle only began in 2013 when I found out I was HIV Positive,” Suleiman reveals.

Although his test results shocked him, he admits that he had seen signs before but hadn’t been keen to make sense of them.

Since it was launched, a tremendous amount of progress has been made in reducing the stigma still faced by many, and the number of people dying from Aids-related illnesses since the first cases were reported.
