“I was dead when I got to WORLD, but it has saved my life,” one woman living with HIV/AIDS said.
She’s part of WORLD, short for Women Organized to Respond to Life-threatening Disease, an organization that has supported women living with HIV/AIDS in Northern California for the past 20 years.
Organizations like WORLD link women to health and social services that help them cope with the stigma and discrimination associated with the disease, which can have as many harmful consequences as the virus itself.
They recently celebrated their commitment to give women a voice to raise awareness and confront HIV/AIDS stigma and discrimination.
