Aine’s story: addressing stigma and ignorance about HIV

Aine, 28, lives in Biharwe village in Mbarara district in western Uganda, and is just one of many people who almost lost his life to HIV due to a lack of information about the virus.
Boda-boda (motorcycle taxi) rider Aine says that when HIV hit his marriage, he believed that he and his wife Joan were bewitched and so they sought medical attention from a shrine in Nyakabale village, some 80 km away in Sheema district.
