Sepi Maulana Ardiansyah, known to his friends and followers as Davi, was sexually abused as a teenager, trafficked into sex work, and became infected with HIV. This harrowing experience altered the trajectory of his life. But once diagnosed, Davi took control. He started on treatment, left sex work and became an advocate for the rights of young key populations. He is also a social media influencer, using his channels to push back against stigma and discrimination.
“My followers listen to me. They strongly support me and even see me as a treatment role model. I want them to learn from me.”
People like Davi are the frontline faces of the fight against HIV, tuberculosis and malaria. Join them in stepping up the fight through the Global Fund’s Sixth Replenishment this year.
