Angelina Namiba, co-author of “Our Stories Told By Us,” recently shared insights on her impactful journey in HIV advocacy in a blog for NAT. With over 26 years of experience, Angelina emphasized the need for representation, both as a leader and as part of a global community of women living with HIV.

“Our Stories Told By Us” challenges stereotypes surrounding African people living with HIV in the UK. Featuring over 40 diverse narratives, the book aims to combat stigma and encourage open conversations about HIV. Angelina highlighted the book’s powerful visual representation, showcasing contributors’ photos alongside their stories, inspiring others to share their experiences.

Grateful for support from individuals and organizations, including Michelle Croston, Mark Santos, Gilead Sciences, fast-track cities London, the Terence Higgins Trust, and Positive East, the co-authors story stands as a testament to resilience.
