YOunGVOICES against HIV: J’s StORy

J is a young Cameroonian peer educator and clinical mentor for young people living with HIV. Despite his active involvement in the fight against HIV, he prefers to keep his status secret for fear of judgement. J agreed to share his story with us anonymously in the hope that it makes a difference.

J’s story is the first in a series of five stories young people we shall publish to show how stigma manifests.
