This book has been a labour of love and we are truly grateful to our contributors, funders and all who have supported us on this journey.

This book fills the gap about the African experience in the history of HIV in UK. Our contributions, stories and voices, as African people, and that of our allies are front & centre. Our stories of how we faced the many challenges that HIV presented our communities.

These are stories of grief, loss and the experience of stigma. They are also stories of hope and love. Most importantly they are our stories told by us

‘Our Stories Told by Us: celebrating the African contribution to the UK HIV response’ will be launched at PositiveEast on Thursday 25th May
