[The AsiaN Video] Plight of the HIV Infected in India

 

Families affected with HIV are mostly poor , living in deplorable conditions. The video posted on our website shows three stories of women Manjula, Gangamani and Laxmi who got infected by HIV by their husband’s or by infected syringes. Their husbands lied to them about being infected with HIV.
Also, contrary to popular opinion, they did not face so much discrimination from the community they lived in , however they became victim of discrimination when they went out to work.
Another unifying theme is that ARV medicines helped them live a comparatively healthy life .
Also all of them had or wanted to have even after getting infected with HIV as there was some social pressure on some of being labelled as a ‘barren woman’ or because of the motherly instincts a woman has.
