For 30 YEARS thousands of readers have turned to PA for important health and treatment information and to be inspired by the experiences and stories of people living with HIV. Here are personal testimonies from readers about how PA has changed how they live with HIV.
Celebrating our 30th anniversary this year, we pay tribute to some of the champions who’ve been featured in our pages: . Tatyana's story: "When she was incarcerated...they would send her to a local HIV clinic every three months, and that is where she discovered POSITIVELY AWARE.
