My Story: Living Life with HIV

To observe World AIDS Day, a storytelling session on the theme “My Story: Living Life with HIV,” is currently ongoing at Samtse. This side-event is organized by the UN in Bhutan in collaboration with Lhak Sam and Rainbow Bhutan: “Celebrating Diversity” and supported by UNAIDS. 

The main objective of this event is to share stories of courage to inspire not only people living with HIV but everyone to work as a community to make a difference in the AIDS response.

Opening the event, the Health Minister, Lyonpo Dechen Wangmo, on the two new people living with HIV who went public today said, “their life is going to be different from today. Unless we work together, we will never achieve our aspirations. If we understand their problems and find solutions. The magnitude of an epidemic like this is more dangerous for a small society.”
