PhotoVoice and International HIV / AIDS Alliance show a woman in Uganda, where it is hard enough to be a Lesbian, Bisexual and Queer (LBQ) woman in Uganda, but to be HIV+ too, facing double discrimination. Many hide their pain in alcohol and drug abuse. Discrimination from the community leads to self-stigmatisation. Even the LGBTI community sees that as a problem, and turn away.
Most people who use drugs (PUDs) boycott public HIV and health facilities through fear of arrest, stigma and discrimination. The extension of HIV services to drug hotspots and dens has the power to increase uptake of HIV services across PUD communities in Uganda. Make HIV services affordable and accessible to all - Support don't Punish
