HIV/AIDS and poverty eradication

It is very exciting for me to join the Pulsewire community.I am a Kenyan woman who is HIV+ and has actually entered the full blown stage.I am on ARVs and has improved greatly.However the side effects of the generic drugs i take are pulling me down.

I am sure that, when empowered i can assist my community in many ways,because it is a community where women are looked down upon,openly abused add tradition prevails so the disease is associated with witchcraft.

Counselling services are not well done and so the+people,majority of them poor with no food to eat and no hope,die well ahead of 'time'.

I am happy to be accepted into this team where i pray that i will be resourceful and get resources.

I want to show the world that there can still be hope beyond being positive,and
pursue your ambitions.
Thank you i am excited to be part of you!

Connections on PulseWire

Dear Auma,

I'm dying to here more about you-- AC tells me you have very touching narratives that you write her. I hope you feel comfortable enough to share them here...(cut and paste is easy).

By the way, there are two potential friends to engage on PulseWire [you can use our search bar above to locate]:

1. Jason Globerman works on microfinancing for low-income HIV+ women in marginalized communities and also works with a group called the Simunye Initiative that raises awareness and funds for those battling HIV/Aids in South Africa.

2. Caroline Mubaira has done work organizing communities, and helped them write position papers, prepare to meet with health authorities and other work.
