An HIV diagnosis in the 1980s meant illness, isolation, stigma, rejection and death. An assumption that HIV did not affect women meant they were particularly isolated, with no services to meet their needs.
In 1992 a group of women from different countries, cultures and backgrounds founded ICW, the International Community of Women Living with HIV/AIDS.
Hear from founders and members of ICW about their experiences, past and present, of healthcare, advocacy and activism.
