Photo of the Week: A Healthier Life, a Better Community

Posted on: 22 June 2012 | Photo of the Week


In a rural village in Zimbabwe, Morgester (52) works as tailor, mostly in exchange for food, firewood and other goods. Morgester says he has been positively impressed by the program through which he receives antiretroviral treatment for AIDS, supported by the Global Fund, as he is always able to get the medicines he needs for free and without delays. He also recently adopted two HIV-positive children who had been abandoned by their parents. “We can have healthier lives with the treatment and can help each other,” he says. “This disease won’t go away, but life goes on.”
