To mark World AIDS Day on Friday, an important photo campaign is once again sharing the stories and experiences of people around the world who are living with the HIV virus.
An annual project from Positively Aware magazine ― an HIV/AIDS treatment journal published by the Test Positive Aware Network non-profit organization ― “A Day With HIV” tells the story of a 24-hour period of time where people compile different elements of their lives into one comprehensive photo essay. First launched in 2010, “A Day With HIV” continues to provide a humanizing role in elevating the voices of HIV-positive people on a global level.
“Each year the faces change, however the stories of hope and courage in these photos empower others to break through the stigma that often exists in real life for many living with or affected by HIV,” Positively Aware editor-in-chief Jeff Berry previously told HuffPost. “Our hope is that by sharing their stories with one another, we can show that there is life beyond HIV.”
