This book tells the real life stories of men and women who live with the HIV/AIDS virus and have triumphed over it. It describes the impact of the virus on people and communities, and the initiatives taken by UNAIDS and the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM). It delves into the myths and rituals that surround women, sex and sexuality, and helps readers understand the human consequences of the epidemic for those affected, their families, communities and society at large.




The toll of both the statistics and devastation that HIV/AIDS is taking around the world can leave us feeling hopeless and helpless. That is why this publication “Voices from Tragedy to Hope” can assist us all. It demonstrates the immense gains for everyone that can result from the force of human will and, in particular, the empowerment of those affected with HIV/AIDS when actively involved in solutions to fighting this pandemic.
