ENCA: ‘My HIV Journey’ – I just stood up and answered their questions

In 2001, new mother Yvette Raphael started losing weight, got tested and discovered that she had Aids. Her life changed when she was told she had three to four years to live. Years later, she was asked to organise a World Aids Day event at work, which included arranging a speaker. Despite her hesitancy, she spoke to a gathering of 80 colleagues, telling them she was HIV-positive.

“I just stood up and answered all their questions, and I’m glad I did,” she said.
