Alive Medical Service Support in HIV disclosure

By Dr Pasquine Ogunsanya | Project Leader

In the streets of Namuwongo, *Cissy* and *Rogers* found love in each other's arms. They share dreams, aspirations, and a deep bond like any other couple. However their relationship faced an added complexity, Cissy is HIV-positive, while Rogers is HIV-negative. Despite this, they embraced their love and embarked on a journey together.
Cissy, having experienced the stigma surrounding HIV, understood the challenges of disclosure, especially for women. She knew the fear of rejection and discrimination that often accompanied revealing one's HIV status. Determined to make a difference and live in honesty, she sought support from the professional counselors of Alive Medical Services who assisted her in disclosing to her partner Rogers.
Alive Medical Services has created a safe space for people living with HIV especially women who can find support and guidance in disclosing their status to their partners. While here, they have sought advice and encouragement to have a happy and healthy life.
As the counselors supported Cissy because she feared rejection and abandonment, Rogers was disclosed to and to Cissy’s surprise and relief, he responded with love and acceptance, expressing his unwavering commitment to their relationship.
Inspired by Cissy and Rogers’ story several women have found the strength to disclose their status to their partners as well. Some encounter challenges but they have found reassurance and guidance from the counselors. Alive Medical Services is not just a health facility but has become a lifeline for those navigating the complexities of HIV disclosure.
From the day Cissy disclosed to Rogers, the couple has been overjoyed to see the positive impact of this initiative and have been together for 3 years now. Through their dedication and compassion, they have created a beacon of hope for HIV-positive women, empowering them to embrace their truth and acceptance in relationships. As Cissy faithfully adheres to her medication and is supported by Rogers, the couple has proved that love knows no bounds and with support and understanding, anything is possible.
