One Issue, Four Foldout Covers

The issue features four versions of the foldout cover, each with photos from A Day with HIV, Positively Aware’s annual anti-stigma campaign. A Day with HIV portrays 24 hours in the lives of people affected by HIV. On September 23, 2023, people around the world photographed a moment of their day, posted the picture to their social media and shared their story using the hashtag #adaywithhiv.
