A Life Saved

Nomfezeko Nozitsholo (aged 47) is living openly living with HIV/AIDS and is one of the group of more than 1,100 people in the Lusikisiki district currently receiving life-saving medication from the Siyaphila La (We are living here) HIV-treatment programme. This programme, supported by MSF South Africa, is making antiretroviral treatment easily available in this poor rural district. She began her treatment in September 2005 with a CD4 count of 21. This picture is one of a set of 112 portraits of people who thanks to Siyaphila La are on ARVs. They were made to coincide with a celebration of the fact that over the past two years the project has managed to get so many people on treatment. This has helped to challenge the stigma in this community and is part of the reason why so many people were happy to show their faces.
