Sexual intimacy: There is no doubt that the presence of HIV can hamper sexual intercourse due to the fear of infection. The fact, though, is that you can still have a fulfilling sexual life.Nonetheless, to be on the safe side, you will need to use protection as guided by your physician.“This is an internal stigma that you must first overcome by recognising that the rumour mill has zero chance of transmitting the HIV virus,” says Curry.Locally, there have been court cases from former lovers who accuse their ex-spouses of infecting them with HIV.It is imperative that the scale up of antiretroviral therapy programmes is accompanied by evidence-based therapeutic approaches if we are to assist adolescents to make informed treatment and secondary prevention decisions and to enjoy happy, fulfilled lives.This pilot study sought to evaluate the digital storytelling process as a therapeutic intervention for 12 HIV positive adolescents and young people within Africaid's Zvandiri programme in Harare, Zimbabwe.
