My life with HIV: Carmen

Mozambique / 30.07.12

“This medication has made a big difference to my life. Before I was taking antiretrovirals, my husband would come back from work and find me just lying in bed. But now that I am taking the medicines I can cook alone, I can wash, and I am running a small shop outside.”


Carmen Jose-Panti is HIV-positive. Her husband, Victorino, is HIV-negative. “She’s a part of me,” says Victorino, who loves his wife deeply and encouraged her to get tested for HIV when she started to show symptoms. Carmen is part of a community group of people living with HIV who support one another and takes turns going to the clinic each month to collect the medicine refills for everyone else in the group. This allows Carmen to get essential things done at home and in her shop.

Carmen is one of eight million people whose lives have been transformed by HIV/AIDS treatment. Treating people who have HIV saves lives and prevents the virus from spreading.
