Thirty years ago, HIV / AIDS was a death sentence. Today people living with HIV (PLHIV) have a comparable life expectancy as our peers without HIV.

While this is great news it also means we’re living longer with an increased chance of extra chronic health conditions. Some reasons for this are to do with HIV, what naturally runs in your family, occupational stress or workplace injury, and ordinary lifestyle factors like smoking, drug useor lack of exercise.

The next edition of Talkabout Online (June) is looking for your stories and experiences of living with HIV along with any other diagnosed health condition. This can include anything from cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, cancer or another health complication.

Some questions to get you started:

  • how are you staying active socially and sexually?

  • what do you do to reduce the impact of or manage multiple health conditions on your life?

  • what advice or suggestions do you have for other PLHIV who want to remain active or engaged?


Deadline: Friday 16 June  - 5pm
