Resilience and visibility

HIV has many different facets. There’s HIV as a medical condition: an initially untreatable virus which, within a fairly short space of time, has become a chronic condition. These days, given the right drugs, it can be managed effectively and is no longer transmissible.
Then there’s HIV as a social phenomenon: in other words, the way in which society perceives HIV. In this respect HIV has changed very little in almost 40 years: it still causes fear and meets with widespread ignorance among the general public. This book tells the story of the Dutch HIV community, and the defining role played within it by The Dutch Association of people living with HIV.
