Two months after starting her ARV medication, HIV-Positive mother Nomphilo Mazuza (24) bathes. She had begun her ARV treatment with a severely compromised immune system. At this point she still had severe TB and her health had not improved at all. Her body was emaciated in a manner typical of people in the final stages of AIDS. At this point the treatment did not seem to be working well, and it seemed as if she might not survive since she had actually lost weight since starting medication. Nomphilo was able to receive ARV treatment thanks the Siyaphila La (We are living here) HIV-treatment programme, which is making antiretroviral treatment easily available in her poor rural district.
