My Life, My Story takes as its goal one simple idea; letting people living with HIV tell their own story.
The stories collected here in the My Life, My Story project are but a small portion of the stories of the over 80,000 people living with HIV in Malaysia and they reflect some of the diversity of those affected. We hope by spreading their stories that we can begin to foster understanding around the realities what it means to be HIV positive. Too often people living with HIV in Malaysia face ongoing stigma and discrimination, often based on misunderstandings, prejudice or stereotypes. My Life, My Story allows people to see the faces and stories of those affected by HIV and to showcase that HIV doesn’t discriminate, so why should we?
