Faces of the Fight: Martha

Martha Clara Nakato was 14 years old when she learned she had been born with HIV. At first gripped by fear, she fought to overcome the misconceptions in her community. Today she is an advocate for young people living with HIV. “I believe that my story can break the stigma and discrimination in the communities and I also believe my story can empower other people living with HIV to keep strong.”

People like Martha 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.
